The United States dropped on Afghanistan "the mother of all bombs"
According to the Afghan Ministry of defense, a huge American bomb, dropped on Thursday in tunnels ISIS in Eastern Afghanistan have killed 36 militants.

Blast from the weapon, called the "mother of all bombs", destroyed three underground tunnels, as well as weapons and ammunition, but civilians were not injured, said the representative of the Ministry of defence. U.S. military officials announced that the stations of ISIS in Nangarhar province, near the border with Pakistan, was thrown a blast bomb GBU-43.

Capable of destroying an area equivalent to nine city blocks, 30-foot bomb is the most powerful non-nuclear weapons which the United States have in their Arsenal. This is the first time it is used in conflicts.

A local resident living within 2 km of the explosion, said he heard "an extremely loud boom that broke the Windows of the house". "We were all scared, and my children and my wife cried. We thought it was right in front of our house," he said. According to officials, the ISIS, which in recent years has expanded in Afghanistan, uses a complex of caves and tunnels that were mined and fortified against conventional attacks.

The US President Donald trump said Thursday that the bombing is "another successful job." This is the third major military action taken by his administration in recent months after the military RAID in Yemen, which killed civilians and U.S. Marines, as well as an unexpected blow to the Syrian airport last week.

The Ambassador of Afghanistan to the United States government Mohib said that huge MOAB was dropped after last week, the fighting intensified. American and Afghan forces are unable to move because ISIS booby-trapped the area with explosives.

According to the us military, the positions of ISIS, struck MOAB, located in the district of Ching Nangarhar province, in a sparsely populated area, where it is thought to work 600-800 soldiers. Local residents reported that more than 3 thousand families left the area for the last year or so, as the militant group has established its presence.

On Twitter, the President of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani endorsed the attack, saying that it "is designed to support the efforts of the Afghan national security forces (ANSF) and U.S. forces ... the conduct of demining operations in the region."

According to us officials, this is the first use of MOAB in the battle field. The munition was developed during the war in Iraq and is a warhead of the air blast type, which explodes before hitting the ground to trigger a massive explosion from all sides.
