Some stories do have a happy ending.
According to reports coming out of the English press, a Special Air Service (SAS) officer found a very creative way to kill a member of ISIS. According to a source inside the group, a division of English Special Forces officers was surrounded by a much larger ISIS contingency near Mosul, Iraq, in recent fighting.
They were retreating and in dire circumstances. Upon realizing that they were close to running out of ammunition, the force decided to “go out fighting” with what they could get their bare hands on.
According to the report in the Daily Star (emphasis added):
By early evening, the British troops had killed at least 20 IS fighters but had almost used up their entire supply of ammunition.
One source said: “ […] They knew that if they were captured they would be tortured and decapitated. Rather than die on their knees, they went for a soldier’s death and charged the IS fighters who were moving along the river bed. They were screaming and swearing as they set about the terrorists.”
The source said that the SAS soldiers fixed bayonets, others drew their knives. They then shook hands and said their goodbyes before charging into the group of around 30 IS fighters.
He added: “They fired off their few remaining bullets and dropped several terrorists before setting about them with whatever weapons they had.
They bayoneted, slashed and beat the IS fighters to death. One soldier, a Warrant Officer in the SBS, drowned one of the terrorists in a small puddleforcing his face into the mud and holding him down until he stopped moving.
He then picked up a stone and smashed it into the face of another gunman wrestling with one of his colleagues.
Another killed three of the fighters by using his assault rifle as a club. Others were stabbing at the gunmen who wanted to capture the British troops alive.”
After the fierce fighting, the report states that ISIS fled and the SAS unit was retuned to the safety of their rendezvous.
In their reign of terror, ISIS has made it a habit to brag about their barbaric ways of killing prisoners and subjugated populations.
It’s nice to see that treatment handed back to them now, compliments of Coalition forces.
