Elite SAS sniper team beheads ISIS executioner with one bullet

An elite SAS sniper in Northern Syria has beheaded an ISIS executioner with a single shot- ironically while the militant was teaching jihadis how to decapitate prisoners.

According to the Daily Express, some 20 Islamic fighters were taking part in the executioner’s outdoor lesson when he was killed by the elite British soldier – hiding over 1,200 meters away and using specially-designed ‘wounding’ ammunition.

Sources state that two four-man teams infiltrated a jihadist compound to set up their vantage point 12 hours ahead of the kill, while a secondary team of 12 waited beyond the combat zone ready to extract the men in case anything went awry.

The sniper, operating in northern Syria, used an Israeli-made Dan.338 rifle with ammo that “tumbles” after hitting a target, thus inflicting a large wound.

 Identifying the instructor by his white clothing, the shooter had to aim more than a foot wide of the target to adjust for wind conditions.

Despite the distance and conditions, the sniper made his mark with one shot.

“One minute he was standing there and the next his head had exploded”, an SAS source said. “The commander remained standing upright for a couple of seconds before collapsing and that’s when panic set in.”

Although the British Army has steered clear of an all-out ground war with ISIS, highly-trained SAS squads have been deployed in small numbers.

“We later heard most of the recruits deserted”, the SAS source claimed. “We got rid of 21 terrorists with one bullet.”

A witness said the entire group of student jihadists then fled, deserting their cause after the ill fated training session at a small village in northern Syria.
