British SAS Sniper Saves Boy, Father From Beheading With Half-Mile Shot

A British Special Air Service Sniper reached out over 1,000 yards and connected with an Islamic State jihadist just as the executioner was about to behead a young boy and his father, reported The Daily Star.

The soldier and his unit were carrying out cover patrols on the Syrian-Turkish border when an Iraqi spy alerted them to the potential beheadings. The soldier peered through his binoculars and spotted a panicked mob and several decapitated bodies. A moment later he put pressure on the trigger of his .50-caliber rifle and loosed a shot.

“Through binoculars, the soldiers could see that the crowd were terrified and many were in tears,” said an unnamed military source.

Through the lens the soldiers could see in the distance a macabre scene being played out. The executioner had already beheaded several “infidels” and was now preparing to kill a young boy and his father.

“A tall bearded man emerged and drew a long knife,” said the source. “He began addressing the crowd and slapping the father and his son around the head and kicking them onto the floor.”

The sniper sighted in on the armed militant and pulled the trigger, sending a chunk of lead soaring across the desert. The round found its mark and the executioner fell dead.

The sniper quickly rattled off two more rounds and, incredibly, hit two more targets.

“The ISIS thug who was about to decapitate the father was shot in the head and collapsed,” said the source. “Everyone just stared in confusion. The sniper then dispatched the two henchmen with single shots – three kills with three bullets.”

Now freed from their captives, the boy and his father fled towards the Turkish border.

“It was a good day’s work,” said the work.

A good day indeed.

    Best outcome over there is wakeup time for those nations to see the full evil of Islam and turn to Christ.
    And this is happening all over there because of tbe Christian ministries putting their lives on the line rescuing those helpless people that “TheObama-nation” left abandoned by pulling out OUR troops after they risked and lost lives to free them= treasonous policy.
    These are 3 ministries aiding these people at great risk to themselves as well as expense to do so and provide food, shelter and safety for those thousands fleeing-
    1) Samaritans Purse
    2) Voice of Martyr’s
    They need finacial support for ongoing rescues.
    Consider sending monthly donations.
    That boy+father ran to find hope+safety= these ministries give it…

    It will be a great day when the last one of these sick evil mother fu____s is taken out but until then it would be nice to read a couple of these story’s daily. God Bless all the men fighting this sick war for us and “liberty and justice for all”.

    I love stories with happy endings. I once saw a video of a sniper shot that was a mile away, and all you saw was a “towel” exploding and flying off. Another nice confirmed kill, this time with some amusement value for us, probably less so for the guy who had been wearing the towel.

    • Greg Blesch June 26, 2017, 12:19 am

      Oh brother!! These Coalition snipers are really causing a towel shortage problem for ISIS(SY) .Maybe we could at least drop a load of humanitarian .50 caliber stain remover for the Jihad laundry crisis.

    What is the argument about? I live in a MOA. People who moved here started bitchin about the noise and sometimes broken windows. I asked them wasn’t it better to be inconvenienced knowing they were our planes as opposed to not knowing if we were the target? The sniper did his job over and beyond. In years he may suffer PTSD because of it. Praise him and thank him for being on our side instead of wondering when we will “never hear the shot”!

    Absolutely outstanding!!! Very, very good to hear. Hopefully us, the good folks in this world, will be getting more and more such news as this. Those Islamic nutjobs in the Middle East have to go.

    I like reading this sites articles, but really wish that when I click on a article that it would start at the beginning of the article and not go to the bottom of the page to the leave comment box so that I have to go back to the top of the page to read the article, then the comments section

    Outstanding! Nice to hear about one for the good guys!

    1/2 mile with a standard .338 is almost point blank range. But then again Karma’s a bitch, isn’t it ! :}

  • James M. August 11, 2015, 11:19 am

    First off I’m not doubting the SAS ability on a .5 mi shot. But this story seems off.

      The British love their war propaganda to stick with sniping.

      They have open air jeeps and no air craft carrier. They have to hype the only real element of power projection they have. It’s more sad than they realize.

      • Michael Brooker August 17, 2015, 4:59 am

        Don’t know where you got that “information”, you should Google the subject of British warships and armored vehicles before further displaying your ignorance.

      • chuck benak August 17, 2015, 9:09 am

        If you don’t have much, be good at what you do.

    • Badger August 11, 2015, 5:21 pm

      off how EXACTLY ?

      • Pops45 August 17, 2015, 11:44 am

        -Badger, I agree, many British and American snipers would have made that shot at 1000 meters, with almost any caliber their snipers use. Original story claims a .50 silenced rifle. This is not a hard to believe story. A story with a happy ending for a father and son for sure.
