As much as the miracle of science has benefited humans, it has also become fatal for people. There was a time when the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki of Japan, in which millions of people died. Although these were just one bomb each, but the most deadly. Today we are going to tell you about the most devastating bombing of human history, about which the knowledge will be shocked. In which so many bombs were dropped on the whole city that about one lakh people died in a single night. This devastating bombing is known as the 'Bombing of Tokyo' or 'Great Tokyo Air Raid', as it took place in Tokyo, the capital of Japan. The bombing took place four months before the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear accident, but the similarity in it is that this terrible and destructive event was also executed by the US.
World War II was going on. The US launched an operation, called 'Operation Meetinghouse'. Under this operation, the US sent 279 of its Boeing B-29 aircraft to bomb Tokyo. The operation began on the night of March 9, 1945, and American aircraft began bombing the entire Tokyo city. On March 10, 1945, the 'Operation Meetinghouse' ended in the morning, that is, this operation went on only one day, but in this one day American planes bombed so much that about one lakh people died and more than 1.25 lakh people were injured. About one million people became homeless. However, 14 American aircraft also crashed in this incident, killing about 96 airmen.
According to a report, about 1665 tonnes of bombs were dropped by American aircraft on Tokyo. More than two lakh 86 thousand buildings and houses were completely destroyed in this bombing. This is the reason why it is considered the world's most destructive air strike.
