According to the Daily Mail, one member of the British Special Air Service (SAS) used only three bullets to kill five ISIS terrorists recently. The veteran SAS soldier had been sent to investigate rumors of a purported suicide bomb factory in a neighboring village near Mosul, Iraq, an ISIS stronghold.
Upon arriving at the location and setting up for a firefight, the SAS soldier radioed that he had located several men wearing long winter coats in hot weather. Perceiving that the men were suicide bombers, the SAS soldier was given the green light to engage. The sniper shot the first terrorist in the chest, exploding his suicide vest and killing the suicide bomber as well as the two guards standing watch outside the bomb-making factory.
Another ISIS member came outside and was promptly dispatched with a head shot. And the last ISIS suicide bomber came out and was also shot in the chest, causing a second explosion. And with that, a lesson was given on how to take out five terrorists with only three shots.

The bravery of the SAS is without question. The mainstream media recently reported that Jihadi John, as he was known, was killed in an airstrike. What isn’t widely known is how SAS soldiers were the boots on the ground providing valuable intel that confirmed Jihadi John (aka Mohammed Emwazi) was in fact inside the six-story building at the time the guided weapons were dropped.
The SAS had taken dune buggies on an over 30 mile ride under the cover of night to conceal their presence. They then released drone helicopters to surveil the building for Jihadi John’s presence. The helicopters beamed back images to Central Command in Qatar, and the green light to drop the bombs was given, resulting in the death of Jihadi John.
