White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer held a press briefing today after U.S. forces dropped the ‘mother of all bombs’ on an ISIS tunnel complex in Afghanistan on Thursday.
Spicer said that the ISIS fighters use these caves to "move around freely." He said that in order to defeat this terrorist group, the U.S. must deny it operational space.
The Pentagon said the strike was "designed to minimize the risk to Afghan and U.S. Forces conducting clearing operations in the area while maximizing the destruction of ISIS-K fighters and facilities."
Spicer said that the military did what it could to avoid civilian casualties.
