Radio 24, 7 August 2017

Fabrizio Foschini talked to Nessun Luogo é Lontano, the foreign politics program of Radio 24 in Italy, about the alleged Taleban/Isis offensive in Sayad district of Sarepul province. He gave a short socio-political profile of the north, talked about the Taleban drive for recruiting non-Pashtuns in the last decade, the competition for their allegiance coming from Daesh’s side based on madrasa preaching and other jihadi networks as well as the ambiguous affiliation of some commanders (ie. Taleban vs. Daesh) in the area (in Italian, starts at 18:45min in the audio).
