Daesh terrorist group suffered no casualties in the GBU-43 bombing in Afghanistan, media reported Friday.
Earlier in the day, an Afghan Defense Ministry spokesperson told CNN broadcaster that at least 36 Daesh militants had been killed in the attack.
Sky News broadcaster reported that the terrorists denied “any dead or wounded from yesterday’s American strike in Nangarhar using a GBU-43/B.”
On Thursday, the 22,000-pound GBU-43, or MOAB bomb, nicknamed the “Mother of All Bombs,” which is the largest non-nuclear bomb in the US military arsenal, was dropped from a C-130 military airlift aircraft, targeting an underground complex and tunnels in Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar province believed to be used by the Islamic State terrorist group.
Former President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai condemned the bombing, accusing the US military of using Afghanistan as a testing site for new weapons.
