Top 8 Terrorist Groups – hot map inside!
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) and the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) have joined forces to create our newest Afghanistan map which tracks the location and ambitions of 8 major enemy groups in the 4 areas of Regional Command.
Many pundits and policy makers often misunderstand the nature and complexity of the enemy we face in Afghanistan. Often, the name “Taliban” is used as a blanket term to describe the insurgency but that label is usually a misnomer. This map serves as a helpful reference tool in exploring the areas where 8 enemy groups converge and provides a closer look at the leadership with helpful visuals images as well.
As always, ISW strives to provide unparalleled research tools that keep our readers informed on the ever changing wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Don’t forget to check out our website for the daily news round-ups!
