ISIS Suffering Big Losses In Afghanistan After Pentagon-Ordered Hit
ISISISIS in Afghanistan isn’t doing so well.

The U.S. military said it had taken out about 80 percent of ISIS terrorists in one fell bomb swoop this week.

The United States dropped the Mother of all Bombs — MOAB — on Afghanistan.

This is the largest bomb that can be used, outside of a nuclear bomb. And it’s never before been used in combat.

Specifically, military officials estimated only about 600 jihadists remained in Afghanistan, post-bombing.

From Breitbart:
“‘As ISIS-K’s losses have mounted, they are using [improvised bombs], bunkers and tunnels to thicken their defense,’ said Army Gen. John W. Nicholson, top commander of U.S. and NATO forces, after the U.S. strike on the jihadist group in Afghanistan.’This is the right munition to reduce these obstacles and maintain the momentum of our offensive against ISIS-K.’
“‘The Pentagon confirmed that the U.S. military dropped the “mother of all bombs,’ officially known as the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast, on an Islamic State tunnel complex in Achin district, located in eastern Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province, marking the first time the massive 21,600-pound bomb was used in battle.
“U.S. military officials have identified eastern Afghanistan’s opium-rich Nangarhar province, located along the country’s border with Pakistan, as the group’s primary stronghold in the region.”
