President Trump ordered the MOAB attack last week.

Thirteen Indians among terrorists were killed in the Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) attack by the US military in Afghanistan last week, reported an Afghan news agency.

 The news agency Pajhwok reported that an unarmed security official confirmed the death of the Indian nationals including at least two commanders identified just as Mohammad and Allah Gupta.

 President Donald Trump ordered the MOAB attack, which is also known as the Mother of All Bombs, targeting a complex of tunnels and caves believed to be used by Islamic states militants in the country’s Achin district of Nangarhar province, last week.

 However, Islamic State and their Amaq News Agency maintained that none of its militants were killed in the bombing.

 It is not clear whether anyone from the list of 21 people, including women and children from Kerala who were suspected of being recruited by IS, is also killed in the air strike. Reportedly, these people left for Afghanistan last year.

 Mohammad Hafezuddin and Murshid Mohammad, the alleged Indian IS recruiters were killed recently, in separate drone attacks.
