It might just be a crackle and a hiss but to many in eastern Afghanistan, it’s a sign that ISIS is back.
ISIS FM was for months how the militants reached out to local Afghans. But then the United States bombed it, as part of a broader campaign to dismantle ISIS, and the radio broadcast went silent.
Yet in the past week, according to several locals, the signal has, occasionally, returned. “It was there three days ago, and it’s gone again,” one man tells CNN. “They are asking people to pledge allegiance and march on Kabul.”
