Now, that’s a heck of a shot! It’s a twofer!! An SAS sniper shot an ISIS car bomber through the head and took out his fellow bomber next to him. This happened in Libya. The ambush was set up with Libyan troops after intelligence was received on the bombers. They were traveling in a white Mercedes at 30 miles an hour. The Libyan troops missed when they fired, the SAS sniper didn’t. He was 1,000 meters away. He fired two shots to gauge the distance then hit the driver in the head and the passenger in the neck.
From the Daily Mail:
An SAS sniper took out two ISIS car bombers with a single shot when they were driving towards their target in Libya.
The heroic sharpshooter saved hundreds of lives by hitting the driver in the head with a deadly shot from 1,000m.
The bullet went through the driver’s skull and lodged in the passenger’s neck, killing them both.
The Jihadists were transporting a massive bomb to Tripoli where they planned to detonate it in a packed market, intelligence revealed. After the marksmen took out his targets, their white 1990’s Mercedes came to a halt. Libyan troops, who were working with the SAS on the ambush, then sprayed the car with machine gun fire until it exploded in a raging fireball. That’s what I call a party and it is worth a happy dance. The SAS is saying the shot was one for the record books. ‘It was an amazing shot. It wasn’t so much about the distance, but the fact that it was a moving target.’ If the sniper had missed, hundreds would have been killed. The source also praised the sharpshooter for his quick-thinking – the Libyan soldiers working with the four-man SAS team were supposed to take out the truck, but they panicked and fired their weapons too quickly, missing the target. The shooting happened last month while members of the Hereford-based SAS were assisting the fight against ISIS in Libya. Well done… that was truly heroic.
