SAS Sniper Kills Five Islamists with Single Shot from Over Half a Mile Away


An SAS marksman killed five Islamic State fighters (IS) with a single sniper shot from 3,000ft away, according to reports.


The highly-experienced special forces sniper is said to have used a Barrett .50 calibre rifle to shoot his jihadist target in the chest – exploding his suicide vest.


The bomb blast killed the target and four other IS fighters. Among the five dead was a top jihadist commander, reports the Daily Star on Sunday.

    That deserves an award!

    Excellent job eliminating evil!

    Oh, I don’t know. 1000 yards away, which is an average distance for a good sniper.
    Now, if he got all 5 without the suicide vest, that would be impressive.

    A Raufoss round into a vest would improve any neighborhood in a hurry, especially if you’re willing to classify that vest as light armor.
