After The Dust Settles
Imagery analysis of the Afghan MOAB strike location
There was intense media coverage of the US Military’s Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) strike in April 2017 in Nangarhar, Afghanistan.
Despite estimates of Daesh fatalities, the wider effect of the strike has not yet been reported as access on the ground to the actual strike location has been restricted by the US Military. Using high resolution satellite imagery captured 15 hours after the strike, we could begin to make assessments of the strike’s impact.
