According to sources, the SAS squadron would like to set up a base in the Afghan-Pakistan border.
The group will then conduct undercover strikes against ISIS-K, the Afghanistan sect of ISIS, based in the east of the country.
Their base will also be used by the Royal Navy’s SBS special forces, the US Army’s Delta Force and the US Navy Seals – the unit which killed al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden in 2011.
Due to the control the Taliban hold over Afghanistan, defence sources say the SAS group will need its approval to operate in the country, which they think is likely to be approved.
