Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) is now probably capable of only small-scale regional attacks, a top American counter-terrorism official told lawmakers on Thursday. AQIS was set up by al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri in 2014 to expand the terror group's influence in the region. Christopher Miller Director, National Counter-terrorism Center said that in mid-March, AQIS published a special issue of Nawai Afghan Jihad.
