The US military on Thursday dropped the "mother of all bombs" in eastern Afghanistan in close coordination with Afghan forces.

The development evoked mixed reactions from the leaders of landlocked nation. 

Given below are the reactions of top Afghani leaders: 

"Precautions were taken to avoid civilian casualties with this airstrike," President Ashraf Ghani said on Twitter.

A journalist from Afghanistan also condemned the bombing in a series of tweets.

Afghan ambassador to Pakistan also took to Twitter to share his views.

It is believed that at least 36 ISIS militants were killed in the massive attack by the US. In a statement, Pentagon said that the military dropped a massive GBU-43, a non-nuclear, 10-tonne missile powered by a wave of air pressure, on an ISIS hideout in Achin district of Nangarhar province on Thursday.
