British SAS fighters were ambushed by 30 ISIS figures while trying to evacuate an undercover agent from Syria into Iraq.
It was during this ambush that an unconfirmed report states one of the troopers single handedly took out six ISIS fighters with his automatic weapon.
The source told a British paper:
“They were out-gunned and out-numbered but the team remained calm and focused. The last thing the jihadis expected was to be attacked, given that the SAS team consisted of eight men and there were at least 30 enemy fighters. The SAS quickly regained the initiative by using courage, aggression and firepower.”
Exaggerated or not, thank God we got great allies like the Brits alongside us!
An SAS soldier who was part of an operation to smuggle a secret agent out of Syria and into neighbouring Iraq has reportedly killed six Islamic State (Isis) fighters after his team were ambushed by at least 30 members of the militant group. The elite unit is said to have comprised eight British men.
The unnamed soldier, according to unsubstantiated reports, single-handedly took out six Isis members with an automatic shotgun in a fierce fire-fight which saw eight jihadists killed. A source told the Daily Star Sunday: “It was a classic SAS encounter. They had lost the initiative when the ambush was sprung.”
