Usually these blasts have taken place on mosques of Shia and Ahmadiyya communities. IS has been accepting responsibility for attacks on religious places of worship of minority groups. Indeed, most of the Taliban’s opponents have weakened, but IS continues to attack. Although the Taliban is trying to control it.
