U.S. drops ‘mother of all bombs’ on ISIS in Afghanistan

U.S. forces used a GPS-guided GBU-43 bomb, which is 30 feet long and weighs a staggering 21,600 pounds.

A crater left by the blast is believed to be more than 300 meters wide after it exploded six feet above the ground. Anyone at the blast site was vaporized.

It has been described as the ‘Mother Of All Bombs’ – a play on the ‘MOAB’ acronym, which stands for ‘Massive Ordnance Air Burst.’
