ISIS airwaves fatwas

According to media reports Sunday, ISIS is broadcasting hours of extremist propaganda in one of Afghanistan’s biggest cities for the first time.
Local residence says since earlier this week, the so-called “Voice of that Caliphate” has been transmitting “lots of revolutionary propaganda and fatwas” on the radio in Jalalabad, calling for followers to kill anyone who stands in the way of ISIS,  Achin district Governor Haji Ghalib told NBC News.
Afghan officials said the transmissions were coming from the Pakistani side of the border, a claim officials there rejected.

News of the emerging radio station follows a Pentagon warning that the ISIS offshoot in Afghanistan has moved beyond the “initial exploratory phase … and are becoming more operationally active.

That ISIS radio was being transmitted into Jalalabad terrified some who have fled fighting between the rival militant groups.

“We heard about [ISIS] radio a few days ago and for the past two nights I have been listening to it,” Azizullah, who has been forced from his village and now lives in a camp for displaced people in Jalalabad. “It has become the talk of the camp. People are afraid, we have seen their brutality and know very well how serious this is.”

“If the government does not stop this it will have a very bad effect on people’s minds — there are a lot of youngsters who will be attracted to them,” added Azizullah, who like many in Afghanistan goes by one name.

Last week, Defense Secretary Ash Carter warned of the threat ISIS posed in Afghanistan.

“We are seeing little nests of [ISIS] spring up around the world, including here in Afghanistan … but I will say that that is a threat that we track very closely,” he said.

Afghan officials said the transmissions were coming from the Pakistani side of the border, a claim officials there rejected.
