Days after a Green Beret was killed fighting ISIS in Afghanistan, the U.S. took military action against the terrorist group.

The U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb out of a C-130 aircraft in the Nangarhar Province Thursday morning. The bomb, known as the Massive Ordinance Air Blast, was first tested in 2003 but has not been used in combat before Thursday.

Weighing 21,600 pounds and measuring over 30-feet long, the bomb’s target was a system of tunnels and caves used by ISIS fighters.

“The United States takes the fight against ISIS very seriously,” White House Press Secretary stated in a press briefing following the news of the bombing Thursday. “In order to defeat the group, we must deny them operational space, which we did.”
