On Thursday, the Defense Department released video footage of the bomb site in Afghanistan after the U.S. dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb on ISIS-K in Achin District, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan. On April 14, U.S. forces issued a strike on an ISIS-K complex as part of the ongoing campaign to destroy ISIS in the region. The goal of the strike was to destroy caves and tunnels the Islamic militant group was using to move around the battle field and hide from Afghan and U.S. forces.

The footage shows the terrain of the area.
