British SAS operator reportedly killed five militants in seven seconds with Benelli shotgun
In the past few years we have seen many reports of the extraordinary actions of the UK Special Operations Forces, mainly SAS and SBS. However, there are sometimes doubts as to the accuracy of these reports. In its most recent report, The Sun reported on a SAS operator who reportedly killed five terrorists in just seven seconds in an attempt to stop a suicide attack. He was reportedly armed with a shotgun.
The British operators were after a bomb factory. They stormed a building as part of a SAS raid on an ISIS outpost in Baghdad, Iraq. When the SAS attack team entered a courtyard, they were confronted with a group of heavily armed militants.
One of the operators on the ‘Assault Team’ shot them with his Benelli M4 Super 90 semi-automatic shotgun, killing three enemy fighters. Another two militants emerged from a building and he is said to have shot them too.
Several other militants then showed up, but surrendered immediately after seeing that two of the bodies “had no heads,” reports say. A source told the Daily Star that the five were killed in less than seven seconds.
“The terrorists weren’t more than a few meters away when the SAS team faced them,” the source said. They had just finished morning prayers and were loading guns into a vehicle. We now believe that they were trying to launch an attack. One of the break team opened fire … it was a case of bang, bang, bang, then bang, bang. It was over in seven seconds. “
Suicide vests filled with plastic explosive plates and ball bearings were found on two of the dead militants. The West is believed to be designed to inflict great harm, ostensibly for mass victims.
The raid took place last year after the SAS (Special Air Service), which worked with MI6 agents and the Iraqi special forces, learned details of an alleged bomb factory in the Iraqi capital. A 12-person SAS team was on site for several days. After monitoring the home, they learned of the plans for several suicide bombings.
The team took action just before dawn, and an “attack team” entered a courtyard through a door.
