The Afghan Defense Ministry said 36 militants were killed, though local officials and residents put the number much higher.
The super bomb President Donald Trump dropped Thursday on tunnels in Eastern Afghanistan killed 36 ISIS militants, according to the Afghan Ministry of Defence.
The commander of the US forces in Afghanistan, General John Nicholson, defended the use of the bomb and confirmed the target of the strike was the network of tunnels that ISIS fighters use to move around and protect themselves from Afghan and USA forces.
The 30-foot-long, GPS-guided bomb is capable of destroying an area equivalent to nine city blocks.
Isis has claimed that the so-called "mother of all bombs" dropped by USA forces on a mountain hideout in Afghanistan did not kill any militants. But the most worrying aspect of the development is that it reconfirms the general perception that the United States is persisting with its policy of using Afghanistan (and also Iraq) as guinea pig for testing of all sorts of weapons in its arsenal.
Assad: Chemical attack is '100 percent fabrication'
Still, Mr Lavrov sought to put a positive spin on the talks with Mr Tillerson, saying they helped improve mutual understanding. Hopes may never have been high, especially after Russian Federation sounded a defiant note before Tillerson arrived in Moscow.
But the USA military brought out the biggest conventional bomb in its arsenal for the first time to hit the Islamic State group, which has a far smaller, but growing presence in Afghanistan - an apparent reflection of President Donald Trump's vows for a more no-holds-barred campaign against the group.
The psychological impact of its use can said to be similar to that of the use of a weapon of mass destruction.
The strike was created to minimise the risk to Afghan and US forces conducting clearing operations in the area while maximising the destruction of IS fighters and facilities, said the US Forces-Afghanistan, which is part of NATO-led Resolute Support.
The Air Force account, written in March 2008, said MOAB "started out simply as an idea" that became a request in late November 2002 as the administration of George W. Bush was contemplating invading Iraq to topple President Saddam Hussein.
The office of President Ashraf Ghani said there was "close coordination" between the USA military and Afghan government over the operation in Achin. Last week, the president ordered 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles into a Syrian airfield in response to an alleged chemical attack against civilians by President Bashar al-Assad two days earlier. CNN said the MOAB bomb was selected because the area targeted was in an extremely remote portion of the country, meaning risk to civilians was minimal.

Cameron Carter-Vickers is also a doubt for the game while Harry Winks and Erik Lamela will not feature again this season. Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling remains doubtful after suffering a setback to his recovery from a knee problem.

Thursday's strike marked the first time the munition had been used in combat, and it became the most powerful bomb used in Afghanistan to date.
Rob O'Neill, the man who killed Usama bin Laden, said those who are questioning the use of the 21,000-pound ordnance are missing the bigger point.

The US army used the 9,800kg bomb, which weighs nearly as much as a double-decker bus, to target a tunnel complex used by the insurgents who are battling both the Afghan army and the Taliban in Afghanistan. According to Afghan officials, the attack was able to decimate a deep tunnel of ISIS group.
Trump says US-Russia relations may be at "all-time low"
President Vladimir Putin received Lavrov and Tillerson at the Kremlin Palace, spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters later. But such hopes appeared optimistic as the diplomats outlined their sharply diverging views on Syria.
