Terrorist recruits were stunned when the sniper took the terror chief’s head off from 1,200 metres away, it has been claimed
(UK MIRROR) – A British sniper fired a special bullet that took an executioner’s head off in one go while he was teaching ISIS recruits how to decapitate prisoners, it has been claimed.
The marksman was reportedly 1,200 metres away when he locked on target killing the villain outright.
Using a special ‘wounding’ bullet – which makes a tumbling motion when it’s fired – the SAS pro was acting on information gained from MI6 agents on the ‘training camp’, reports say.
Eight British troops were armed with long range sniper rifles, machine guns and rocket launchers – while another team of 12 were close by in military vehicles.
The incident reportedly happened at a northern camp in Syria a fortnight ago.
Operatives received information on the whereabouts of the mob undergoing tactical training in a small village close to a school.
They were teaching young recruits how to use knives, axes and a sword to kill prisoners.
The remote location was unable to be targeted by airstrikes leading to ground action. A source told the Daily Express: “The SAS sniper was using aequipped with a suppressor which reduces the sound and eliminates any flash from the barrel.
“He had to aim off by more than a foot. One minute he was standing there and the next his head had exploded.”
According to reports the crack team used specialist weapons to carry out their mission which had been approved by military commanders.
