Trump promised ISIS would be wiped out and he is keeping to his word.
Our military just dropped a HUGE bomb in Afghanistan, according to four US military officials that are heavily involved in the mission.
MOAB, a GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, was dropped at 7 p.m. local time Thursday, by an MC-130 aircraft. The operation was carried out by Air Force Special Operations Command, according to the sources.
Also known as “mother of all bombs”, the MOAB is a GPS-guided munition that weighs 21,600 pounds!
It is America’s most powerful non-nuclear bomb.
The target in question?
An ISIS tunnel and cave complex, as well as personnel, in the Achin district of the Nangarhar province.
The military is currently assessing the damage. Gen. John Nicholson, commander of US forces in Afghanistan, signed off on the use of the bomb, according to the sources.
Authority had to be sought from Gen. Joseph Votel, commander of US Central Command.
According to US official, this is MOAB’s debut in the battlefield. This weapon was developed during the Iraq War.
