Ghafari, who’s also known as Al-Muhajir was described as an experienced military leader and one of ISIS-“urban K’s lions” in Kabul who has been involved in guerilla operations and the planning of suicide and sophisticated attacks, according to an ISIS communiqué while announcing his appointment.

ISIS-K previously fought the Talibans in Afghanistan as well as the Western-backed government that fell in August.

According to the State Department, Ghafari was in charge of approving all ISIS-K operations in Afghanistan and securing financing to carry them out.

In November, it designated him as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist.”

According to some accounts, the 27-year-old was born in Iraq, based on his nickname al-Muhajir, which means “migrant,” but according to US official documents, he was born in Afghanistan.


Before joining the Islamic State group, he was thought to have been a mid-level commander in the Taliban-allied Haqqani Network.

For years, the Talibans overshadowed ISIS-K.

According to a United Nations monitoring report released this week, ISIS-K has prospered in recent months following the collapse of the Western-backed Afghan government.

And after the liberation of over a thousand captives from prison, estimates of ISIS-K members has almost doubled from an initial 2,200 members to about 4000, according to the report.

The suicide attack on Kabul airport during the closing days of the chaotic American pullout further propelled ISIS-K into the spotlight.

The Pentagon announced the results of its inquiry on Friday, determining that a single ISIS-K bomber killed 13 US troops and at least 170 Afghans.

The bombing occurred on August 26 as US troops attempted to assist Americans and Afghans fleeing the Taliban’s control.

The Islamic State – Khorasan Province (ISIS-k) is a South Asian and Central Asian offshoot of the Islamic State (IS).

Some media outlets refer to the group as ISK (or IS–K), ISISK (or ISIS–K), IS–KP, Daesh–Khorasan, or Daesh–K.

ISKP has been active in Afghanistan, with claims of attacks in Pakistan, Tajikistan, and India, as well as pledges of loyalty in Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Bangladesh, and China. Both the ISKP and the Taliban see each other as foes.

The group was founded in January 2015 by disgruntled Taliban in eastern Afghanistan, but its members come from all over the world, including Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, and Myanmar.
