Afghanistan's previous president said Monday that President Trump “committed an immense atrocity” in allowing the U.S. military to drop one of its most powerful non-nuclear bombs on ISIS tunnels in the country last week.
“If the American government sees us as human beings, then they have committed a crime against fellow human beings, but if they treat us as less than human beings, well, of course they can do whatever they want,” Karzai added.
Thursday’s strike marked the first time the munition had been used in combat, and was the most powerful bomb used in Afghanistan to date.
The Afghan and U.S. militaries coordinated for the operation, the president of Afghanistan’s office reportedly said.
Karzai previously called the bomb "a violation" of Afghanistan's "sovereignty,” and “a disrespect to our soil and environment.”
Trump, meanwhile, called the operation "another successful event.”
The governor of the Achin province in Afghanistan said that at least 90 ISIS fighters were killed in the attack, and no civilians, according to the BBC.
