AAN’s Kate Clark is quoted her on Afghans’ resilience against IS attacks on Shias:

… observers such as Kate Clark, a senior analyst at the Afghanistan Analysts Network, believe Afghans will continue to resist IS efforts to spark sectarian violence.

“In Afghanistan most areas have been through really nasty communal violence,” Clark told AFP.

“People have got very strong personal memories of just how nasty that gets and how everyone suffers.”
