SAS Top Soldier Tasked With Taking Down Jihadi John

WHATS IN THE NEWS logo 

The man who has become the face of terror around the world is now being pursued by one of the UK’s greatest soldiers. This Special Forces guy is an elite sniper with more long distance kills than anyone in his unit. He isn’t doing it alone though, he is part of a four- man team ordered to take out (and I don’t mean to dinner) senior members of the terror group, so called ISIS, with minimal unnecessary casualties. Mohammad Emwazi, the man they call Jihadi John is on the top of the US and British Special Forces’ “kill or capture” list. A source from the SAS said this of the elite sniper:

“He is part of an elite within an elite. The group is known as ‘long-range death’ within the regiment, and the unit contains some of the world’s best snipers. They spend hours on ranges and practising their field craft so they can remain hidden for hours while waiting for the perfect shot. Jihadi John wants to be a martyr and the SAS is determined to help him on his way. His days are numbered”.
