karzai_warns-615x300@2xKABUL: The former Afghan President Hamid Karzai angrily reacted at the US forces move for dropping ‘Mother of All Bombs’ on the hideouts of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group in Afghanistan.

“I vehemently and in strongest words condemn the dropping of the latest weapon, the largest non-nuclear #bomb, on Afghanistan by US military,” Karzai said in a Twitter post.

He said “This is not the war on terror but the inhuman and most brutal misuse of our country as testing ground for new and dangerous weapons. It is upon us, Afghans, to stop the #USA.”

The US Forces in Afghanistan (USFOR-A) in a statement said “At 7:32 pm local time today, US Forces-Afghanistan conducted a strike on an ISIS-K tunnel complex in Achin district, Nangarhar province, Afghanistan, as part of ongoing efforts to defeat ISIS-K in Afghanistan in 2017.”

The statement further added that the strike used a GB-43 bomb dropped from a US aircraft. “The strike was designed o minimize the risk to the Afghan and US forces conducting clearing operations in the area while maximizing the destruction of ISIS-K fighters and facilities.”

The commadner of the US forces in Afghanistan General John Nicholson said “As ISIS-K’s losses have mounted, they are using IEDs, bunkers and tunnels to thicken their defense. This is the right munitio to reduce these obstacles and maintian the momentum of our offensive against ISIS-K.”

The statement by USFOR-A also added that the US forces took every precaution to avoid civilian casualties with this strike.

    This US is a joker and while Afghans are grateful that they have helped the country towards a semblance of normality even it be very small it is now overstepping its mandate .
    If the US is serious abt fighting Isis or Talebs it will invade Pakistan and make the border at Attock and cut of all Punjabi Terrorism in Pashtun and Afghan lands .The hide outs and planning of all terrorism in Afghanistan are directed by the Punjabi generals in Rawalpindi and Lahore and Rishwabad.They continue to receive billionsl,weapons and jets from the US non stop.The US should have invaded Napakistan and all Terrorism would have stopped long ago.

    Punjabis and the Wahhabi Terrorism is the number one reason for the existence ofJjehadis and your Arab friends too. Help the Baluch and Afghans to have their Lloy Afghanistan as you do the Kurds and you can come and do business as you like in the Loy Afghanistan country from Amu to Arabian sea and truncate the Punjabi Terrrorist land to btween Jheulum river and Indian border and give the kashmiris the rghts to have their own country,the or join India.the Seraikis and sindhis should be given their own country. Punjabis are the Real Terrorist of South And Central Asia and you seem to be oblivious of it as you enjoy the company of these terrorist.Talebs are just the dumb fanatic illiterate proxies of Rishwabad and Rawalindi
