US and NATO try to deny IS presence in Afghanistan

Summary of Disinformation

US and NATO military in Afghanistan makes every effort to silence and deny [the IS group’s presence in Afghanistan].

Disproof

The U.S., NATO, and Afghan forces have not only acknowledged the IS operations but also are aggressively targeting the group. Even so, Islamic State fighters are reportedly fleeing Iraq and Syria and heading to Afghanistan and IS is actively recruiting fighters there.
