Description

  • FRONTLINE: ISIS in AfghanistanISIS's rapid expansion across Iraq and Syria in 2014 shocked the world. Now in 2015, the self-proclaimed Islamic State is on the rise in Afghanistan. FRONTLINE reveals the degree to which ISIS is gaining a foothold in the country, and how they're focusing their efforts on training a new generation of jihadists: children as young as three.
    Follow FRONTLINE reporter Najibullah Quraishi (The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan; Opium Brides) on a dangerous journey inside ISIS-held territory in Afghanistan. Quraishi's access and footage are rare and remarkable: local ISIS leadership invited him to film inside a school where children are taught "jihad lessons," and he films another group of children being taught how to kill people, how to behead, and how to become suicide bombers. In addition, Quraishi shows first-hand how the group is expanding its control in the country, fighting some members of the Taliban and co-opting others, and also battling Afghan forces. With President Obama keeping U.S. troops in Afghanistan amid growing violence, ISIS in Afghanistan is a timely and chilling look at a dangerous new threat.
