BULLSEYE: Special Forces Sniper Takes Out ISIS Sniper From An Astounding 1.5 Miles Away
A battle between two snipers lasted for over four hours, but the deadly game of cat and mouse did not end well for the ISIS gunman. A marksman for the Special Air Service (SAS), which is a special forces unit of the British Army, was able to take out an Islamic State fighter from an astounding distance of 1.5 miles away!
Iraq’s special forces have declared “game over” in their mission to recapture the last remaining districts in western Mosul from the Islamic State but fighting still rages on in a handful of neighborhoods. In one of those areas where Daesh is lingering, an SAS sniper had a shootout with an ISIS sniper.
The British marksman was using the American CheyTac M200 Intervention gun system, said to be the most powerful rifle in the world.
The ISIL fighter was using a Russian Dragunov gun, which the SAS servicemember witness him use to kill and wound several Iraqi military members. But that was about to end.
