A hero sniper miraculously made the shot of a lifetime and by doing so saved the lives of hostages in despair.
Last month in northern Syria, a British SAS sniper was 4,900 feet away from the four Islamic State jihadists. The deranged terrorists were about to execute 12 prisoners with a flamethrower. The anonymous sniper fired one single bullet from his Barrett .50 caliber rifle and the perfect shot hit the fuel tank of the flamethrower, causing it to explode. The explosion killed the executioner as well as three other Daeshbags in a village near Raqqa.
The Mirror reports that the “blast is said to have turned the executioner – a blood-thirsty man who had long been on a special forces ‘kill list’ – into a ‘human fireball.'”
“The executioner gave some sort of rambling speech over a loud hailer then when he finished the SAS sniper opened fire,” the Mirror reports. “The bullet struck the fuel container and it exploded immediately. He was incinerated and several of his henchmen were also killed.”
It is believed that all of the hostages, eight men, and four women, escaped alive.
The moral of the story is don’t be a complete lunatic cockwad and use a flamethrower to execute people because the flames might actually come back to burn you.
