The U.S. military dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb, referred to as the ‘Mother of all Bombs’ or ‘MOAB’, targeting ISIS territory in Afghanistan on Thursday.
The bomb was over 21,000 pounds and dropped from a U.S. Air Force MC-130 cargo aircraft.
The bombing comes after a U.S. Army Green Beret was killed in the area on Tuesday.
President Trump made his first remarks regarding the Afghanistan bombing, stating he authorized the attack.
“Really another successful job. We’re very very proud of our military, just like we are proud of the folks in this room...We have incredible leaders in the military and an incredible military.”
