It’s raining MOAB’s hallelujah…..!
‘An ear-splitting blast then it felt like the heavens were falling in’: Afghan villagers describe the terrifying moment the US dropped the Mother Of All Bombs on ISIS terrorists – as Russia reveals its even bigger FATHER Of All Bombs
The 21,600lb weapon – nicknamed the ‘mother of all bombs’ – set fire to the air around it as it exploded and vaporised anyone in the vicinity.
The Pentagon yesterday released aerial footage of Thursday’s attack, showing the 30ft bomb – a GBU-43B Massive Ordnance Air Blast or MOAB, the acronym that also gives it its nickname – speeding through the air before the huge explosion in a remote mountainous area of Nangarhar province, near the Pakistan border.
The Afghan ministry of defence said at least 36 IS terrorists hiding in underground tunnels were killed as the bomb released the equivalent of 11 tons of TNT at 7.32pm local time, and that the death toll could rise. Ammunition caches were also destroyed.
