While this is not U.S. military news, this report of a British sniper taking out an ISIS militant who was teaching a class on how to behead captured prisoners was too good not to share.
Get this...the British Special Air Service sniper's shot took the ISIS militant's head 'clean off' according to The International Business Times.
You read that right. The British sniper, who was about 1,000 meters away, not only killed the ISIS commander, but actually decapitated him in the process.
And that kill shot happened during an Islamic State class with 20 students on how to behead prisoners.
British Sniper Decapitates ISIS Militant with Kill Shot
“One minute he was standing there and the next his head had exploded,” a British military source told Express UK.
“The commander remained standing upright for a couple of seconds before collapsing and that’s when panic set in.
We later heard most of the recruits deserted. We got rid of 21 terrorists with one bullet.”
According to IBT, "The soldier was operating in the northern Syria a fortnight ago and was using a .338 rifle with tumbling ammo that can cause a huge hole in the body on impact. The sniper had assistance from 12 fellow SAS soldiers, who managed to sneak into a jihadi compound before the shot was fired."
