According to a report presented to the United Nations Security Council, Al Qaeda has established eight new training camps and maintains safehouses in Afghanistan. The report suggests that the Taliban has not severed ties with the terror group as outlined in the Doha agreement, and instead, has provided increased protection and support. Al Qaeda also operates religious schools to train and indoctrinate children and controls safehouses in Kabul and Herat province. The Taliban denies these claims, stating that there is no one related to Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. Analysts believe that Al Qaeda is weaker now, and the Taliban values U.S. humanitarian support and avoids jeopardizing it.
