** What is the Over-the-Horizon Counterterrorism Strategy for Afghanistan?
------------------------------------------------------------


**
------------------------------------------------------------

In the aftermath of the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan and the Taliban’s takeover, the Biden administration has been pursuing an “over-the-horizon” counterterrorism strategy relying on airpower rather than troops to prevent the rise of ISIS-Khorasan and the resurgence of al Qaeda.

Going forward, the U.S. is negotiating with Pakistan on a formal agreement to use Pakistani airspace for American aircraft flying to Afghanistan for over-the-horizon counterterrorism missions.
