Islamic State loyalists have recently taken control over significant territory in Afghanistan, ousting the rival Taliban jihadist group there. Citizens of Afghanistan claim that hundreds of militants have pledged allegiance to IS and launched military operations against the Taliban.

Russia’s foreign ministry said on Monday Western and regional media demonstrate biased attitudes while covering developments in Syria and activities of terrorist groups in that country. “Regrettably, many Western and regional mass media prefer to focus on the Syrian government’s responsibility for the death of civilians rather than on barbarous actions of terrorists and extremists who enjoy foreign support and commit brutal crimes against the Syrian people virtually every day,” the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement after a series of terrorist attacks in the Syrian city of Homs. We remember a total of 37 people were hurt in twin explosions in Homs on June 14.
