On Thursday, President Trump gave the U.S. military the thumbs up to drop the ‘Mother of All Bombs’ on ISIS in Nangarhar Province in Afghanistan.
This hefty piece of war weaponry weighs about 21,000 pounds.
Currently the Department of Defense has not released a report disclosing the casualties or damage.
However, a freelance journalist based out of Kandahar, Afghanistan, Ahmad Wali Sarhadi, gave some insight from the local officials in Nangarhar:
“Yeah, I am on the line with local officials of Nangarhar. They say a big complex of ISIS has been destroyed by the dropping of the bomb from the U.S.!
ISIS’s biggest complex in Afghanistan is destroyed. They say more than 100 ISIS members are killed. The casualties may get higher.”
Sarhadi also noted there may be a possibility of civilian casualties.
This is one of the first reports on known casualties.
If the estimate is correct, this would be one of the most effective military strikes against ISIS yet… and guess what?!
We’ve got footage of it ALL right here.
