Pakistan launches offensive against IS near Afghan border

Pakistan launches offensive against IS near Afghan border - BBC News:

IS in the region is mostly made up of former members of the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban and Gen Ghafoor reiterated the government's stance that the group has no established presence inside Pakistan.
"There is no organised infrastructure and we shall not allow them to establish themselves," he said.
"As regards inside Afghanistan, yes, Daesh is getting stronger there, is gaining strength. But still, we feel that it is not purely the Daesh which is there in the Middle East."
