▪️Beyond Al Qaeda, the Taliban is also providing shelter and support to other militant groups, including the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), and Ansaarullah. This collaboration represents a broader effort to consolidate militant activities and create a network of alliances within the region.

—— The evolving relationship between the Taliban and Al Qa.eda poses a significant threat to regional stability and international security.

The combined resources and strategic alliances suggest an increasing capability to orchestrate and support global jihadist operations.
