New York: Amid counter-terrorism efforts by the United States against ISIS and the Taliban, an old enemy of the country, Al Qaeda, seems to be reappearing as their training camps are sprouting up in Afghanistan.

According to The New York Times, the recent reports of Al Qaeda reemerging seems to be forcing Pentagon and American intelligence agencies to assess whether they could again become a breeding ground for attacks on the US.

Most of the handful of camps are not as big as those that Osama Bin Laden built before the 9/11 attacks.

The scope of Al Qaeda’s deadly resilience in Afghanistan appears to have taken American and Afghan officials by surprise.

The administration has not talked much about the new challenge or its strategy for confronting the threat from Al Qaeda as it hurries to help the Afghan government confront what has been viewed as the more imminent threat, the surge in violent attacks from the Taliban, the Haqqani network and a new offshoot of ISIS.
