Talk about a sure shot. An ISIS terrorist was snagged and dropped by a British special forces sniper who was stationed at a secret spot one and one-half miles from his target.
It took three seconds for the bullet to hit the target, according to local reports.
Apparently, the sniper was using a CheyTac M200 intervention gun, the world’s most powerful hand-held firearm.
From the Express:
“The SAS sniper reached his jihadi target in three seconds, using the CheyTac M200 Intervention gun, which holds the record for the world’s longest shot.
“Priced at an astonishing £10,500 ($13,800), the rifle produced is only produced in California.
“A source told the Star on Sunday: “It was a classic counter-sniper operation. The ISIS gunman was moving all the time to get into the best position to get a kill.
“‘It was like a game of cat-and-mouse and at one point the SAS almost gave up, believing that the terrorist had gone to ground.
“‘Just as the light was beginning to fade the gunman moved into what he thought was a safe location and lifted his rifle up into his shoulder before the SAS shot him dead.’
“The incidentally reportedly took place two weeks ago in Iraq’s war-torn city of Mosul as the jihadi was leaving a burned-out building.
“Noticing the nonconformist militant, the gunman reportedly pulled the trigger to shoot the terrorist. The incident is now logged in the sniper’s books as his ‘most difficult kill,’ reports have claimed.”
