AFGHANISTAN, Nangarhar Province (INTELLIHUB) — The U.S. dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb onto an Islamic State bunker facility Thursday marking its debut to the battlefield.

The 21,600 pound GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB) (a.k.a. the Mother of All Bombs) was dropped just after 7:30 a.m. local time decimating the facility.

“The United States takes the fight against ISIS very seriously and in order to defeat the group we must deny them operational space, which we did,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a press briefing regarding the attack.

The MOAB has a 1-mile wide blast radius.

President Trump praised the attack Thursday and said North Korea is next on his plate.

“Another successful job. We are very proud of our military,” the President said.
