A British special forces sniper saved a petrified eight-year-old boy and his father from being beheaded by ISIS savages with a head shot from more than 1,000 meters away, or roughly the distance of 11 football fields.
According to British newspaper Express UK, a British special forces group carrying out covert patrols on the Syrian-Turkish border was tipped off by an Iraqi spy to the execution site where Shiites were being accused of being “infidels,” which is punishable by death. ISIS forced locals to attend by holding them at gunpoint, in an effort to scare them into compliance.
The sniper plan was solidified when a unit axed calling in an aerial drone attack due to the collateral damage it may cause innocents in the area.
A military source revealed that there were already many decapitated bodies lying on the ground when the special forces began its mission. Through binoculars, the soldiers could see that the remaining “infidels” were terrified, many in tears.
Then, a man and his young son were pulled from the crowd, blindfolded, and sent to their knees.
Per the source,
“A tall bearded man emerged and drew a long knife. He began addressing the crowd and slapping the father and his son around the head and kicking them onto the floor.”
Two men holding AK-47’s stood on each side of the knife-holding jihadist.
That’s when the trained sniper killed the executioner with a .50-caliber rifle shot from a half-mile away directly to the head.
An unnamed source elaborated on the wild scene.
“The ISIS thug who was about to decapitate the father was shot in the head and collapsed. Everyone just stared in confusion. The sniper then dispatched the two henchmen with single shots – three kills with three bullets.”
The boy and his father were then untied and ran away toward the Turkish border.
“It was a good day’s work,” a source told the Daily Star.
