An SAS marksman killed five Islamic State (IS) fighters with a single sniper shot from 3,000ft away, according to reports.

The highly-experienced special forces sniper is said to have used a Barrett .50 calibre rifle to shoot his jihadist target in the chest – exploding his suicide vest.

The bomb blast killed the target and four other IS fighters. Among the five dead was a top jihadist commander, reports the Daily Star on Sunday.

  1. Bet that sniper had a smug look on his face after pulling that off!
    There has been some great long range shots pulled off over the years, takes great patience and skill mixed with a lil luck to hit a target at those distances.

  2. Barrett – what a gun. Made by an American family business. Mom, apple pie and a Barrett. You can’t get more Americana than that.
    Meanwhile in Aotearoa we are assaulted by gormless wonders from the government down.

  3. More to the point WTF is a British soldier doing in Syria illegally?

    They were not invited.
    They are illegal occupiers.
    Invaders.
    This is no better than British Soldiers on the Streets of Northern Ireland for decades from the 1970s.
    That was not the role of soldiers.
    Ireland should have been a poo lice operation.

    What would be the reaction if this was transplanted?
    Syrian soldiers go to England and specifically London and they took out the knife crime by shooting out the perpetrators.
    After all in the Sadiq Khan London knife crime is out of control.
    Get some Syrian or Iraqi soldiers to take care of it . Same thing.

    Non approved soldiers should not be in Syria otherwise it is , simply, an illegal invasion.
    The yanks and poms invaded without declaring war.
    That makes them sneaky shits.
    I have zero respect for that.
    Not real soldiers. Not honorable soldiers.
    No hero worship for this illegal invader.

    They were there because they wanted to bring down Assad as he was an ally of Russia and they thought they could get in ‘hard and fast’ and achieve that before anyone worked out what happened…
    ….Then appoint a puppet leadership like the yanks did with Marcos in the Philippines, Suharto in Indonesia, Many South and Central American countries; the Shah of Iran , the King in Iraq.

    None of that was to help the local people it was to help US corporations just as people are waking up to the nastiness of Amazon, Microsoft, Twitter, . Google et al in 2020/21
    It helps to know history and not think you are learning it from BBC (Buggering British Children), CNN, or TVscum.

    ISIS did not exist as such in 2011.
    This was a group enabled by the USA just as al Qaeda was.
    an Obummer/Killery creation.

    Next ‘they’ will be telling us the NZ SAS went to Afghanistan to build schools and hospitals.
    Oh, wait, they did tell us that!
