An angry former president, Hamid Karzai, on Saturday lashed out at government and the U.S over Thursday night’s bombing of Achin district in Nangarhar.

Karzai said he did not recognize the government, and has decided to work to get rid of America in Afghanistan.

"Yesterday it was the third time that I decided to free Afghanistan (first time from Russia, second time from Pakistan and now) from America's incursion, operation and violation."

Comparing Thursday's bomb to a nuclear weapon, Karzai asked "why did you drop an atom bomb in our country?"

He criticized government for “allowing the U.S to drop such a big non-nuclear bomb. If government approved it, the act is treason."

He said the bombing was an insult to Afghanistan and that the U.S was just using Daesh as an excuse.

According to him Thursday’s bombing had been pre-planned and it had been to test a weapon of mass destruction.

Karzai also said it was a violation of Afghanistan's sovereignty and a violation of the environment.
