They faced almost certain death. Imagine the look on the hostages’ faces when help came from such an unexpected direction!
A British sniper took out a feared ISIS executioner as he prepared to murder several hostages by shooting a fuel tank on his back and incinerating him.
The SAS marksman fired a single round from his Barrett .50 calibre sniper rifle at the terrorist, who was about to use a flame thrower to kill 12, from 1,500m. [1,640 yards]
The bullet hit the flame thrower’s fuel tank and caused a huge fireball, also killing three other ISIS members who were ready to film the execution…

The ISIS executioner killed in the mission is said to have been on a US ‘kill list’ for several months, due to his method of slaughtering prisoners by burning them alive.
The source told the newspaper: “The SAS team moved into an overwatch position above a village where they were told the execution was going to take place.
