British sniper saves boy and father from ISIS beheading with incredible half-mile shot
Now this is some military heroism worth cheering about!
An SAS ground unit had moved into position just outside the village where the gruesome punishment was being meted out.
“Through binoculars, the soldiers could see that the crowd were terrified and many were in tears,” the source said.
Soon, a man and his young son were pulled from the crowd, blindfolded, and placed on their knees.
“A tall bearded man emerged and drew a long knife,” the source reportedly said. “He began addressing the crowd and slapping the father and his son around the head and kicking them onto the floor.”
The knife-wielding jihadist was flanked by two men toting AK-47s.
That’s when the SAS sniper killed the executioner using a .50-caliber rifle shot from 1,000 meters away, more than half a mile.
“The ISIS thug who was about to decapitate the father was shot in the head and collapsed,” the unnamed source told the Daily Star. ”Everyone just stared in confusion. The sniper then dispatched the two henchmen with single shots – three kills with three bullets.”
After the militants were killed, the boy and his father were untied and ran away toward the Turkish border.
The Star reported that the sniper plan gelled after the unit rejected calling in an aerial drone attack due to the risk that innocent bystanders would be killed.
So….Coulson casually mentioning something about the previous Ghost Rider, though. Like, brah, you knew fuck all about the Rider when Robbie showed up, so did you discover a secret file on Johnny Blaze or what?
