A British Special Air Service marksman killed a top ISIS executioner in a small village near Raqqa, Syria, as he was about to murder several hostages with a flame thrower. The sharpshooter pierced the fuel tank on the terrorist’s back, incinerating him and three of his comrades who were preparing to film the execution.
The SAS sniper fired a single .50 caliber round from his Barrett rifle from over 1640 yards away (almost 14 football fields) just seconds before the jihadists began to torch the 12 hostages alive. Shortly after the explosion, British and U.S. Special Forces arrived to free the prisoners.
The now crispy executioner had reportedly been on the U.S. “kill list” for several months, and was known for his preferred method of slaughtering his civilian captives by burning them alive. The US and British special forces team had been targeting “high-value” ISIS operatives for many weeks before a Syrian CIA agent revealed the radical Islamist’s location.
A source told the Daily Star Sunday,
“The SAS team moved into an overwatch position above a village where they were told the execution was going to take place.
Up to 12 civilians were going to be murdered – eight men and four women. They were suspected of being spies.
None of them were agents. The Isis killers knew that but just wanted to instill fear into the local population.
The executioner gave some sort of rambling speech over a loud hailer then when he finished the SAS sniper opened fire.”
It just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
