UNITED STATES — Multiple media outlets are reporting that the United States has dropped a massive 21,000-pound bomb on suspected ISIS tunnels in Afghanistan. While 1600PennWatch is unable to independently confirm this, the other outlets are citing high-ranking officials with knowledge of the bombing.
The bomb, nicknamed “The Mother of all Bombs”, was developed during the Iraq war, but was never used in battle until now. It is believed to be the largest non-nuclear bomb ever used.
The White House and Pentagon both declined immediate comment.
This is a developing story, we will update as more info becomes available.
