KABUL, Afghanistan — Taliban fighters raided a hideout of the Islamic State group north of the Afghan capital on Friday, killing and arresting an unspecified number of militants, a Taliban spokesman said. Since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in mid-August, there has been an increase in attacks by IS militants targeting Taliban members. The Taliban and IS are enemies, and the attacks have raised the specter of a wider conflict between the long-time rivals.

In late August, an IS suicide bomber targeted US evacuation efforts outside Kabul international airport in one of the deadliest attacks in the country in years. The blast killed 169 Afghans and 13 US service members. Taliban spokesman Bilal Karimi told The Associated Press that Friday’s raid took place in the city of Charikar in Parwan province. He did not provide more details and his statement could not be independently verified.

The raid followed an arrest by the Taliban of two IS members linked to a roadside bombing that targeted their vehicle in the city, wounding four fighters, Karimi said. The two were questioned and the information they provided helped the Taliban identify the hideout, he added.

Yeah, "questioned". I would not want to have been in their shoes! The Taliban don't mess around with those who oppose them. They are not encumbered by our ideas of human rights when it comes to dealing with those who seek to attack them.

I guess there is no such thing as a "brother-in-Allah" to adherents of Islam, no command to love one another unlike Jesus who commanded, "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."
