You hear about military snipers being good at their jobs. Then you hear about this and it blows all those stories away.
With news last week that U.S. air strikes took out three, high-ranking ISIS officers, we got slightly excited that we were making a difference for a chance. Instead of, you know, just sitting back and watching the likes of Russia and Germany have all the fun taking them out. Well turns out that just one British sniper is all it takes to destroy more ISIS operatives than Obama can with bombing alone.
The sharp-shooter took out three terrorists, at least two of whom were wearing explosive vests, as they made their way to carry out a suicide mission.
The unnamed veteran, who joined the SAS a decade ago, saved potentially hundreds of lives by unleashing three well-aimed shots from a distance of 800m.
The operation took place two weeks ago at a bomb factory around 10km outside the ISIS-occupied city of Mosul.
He used only 3 bullets!? Ok, now I’m impressed.
The sniper shot the first jihadi in the chest, detonating his explosive device and killing him instantly, along with two ISIS guards sat in a nearby car.
The second terrorist was killed with a headshot, as he and the third man tried desperately to get back into the locked factory.
The third jihadi also died when his explosive vest was set off by a third and final well-aimed shot from the colour sergeant.
I know we have amazing snipers in the American military, but wow. That is amazing!
