US Drops ‘Mother of All Bombs’ on ISIS

The Pentagon reported that the United States dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS cave in Afghanistan earlier today.

The bomb, nicknamed the “Mother of All Bombs,” was so large that it was dropped from the back of a cargo plane.

According to The New York Times, at the height of the war in Afghanistan, similar bombs were dropped on the caves of the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
