Special Forces soldiers from Britain’s most shadowy military unit are dressing as Islamic State militants and traveling deep into the badlands of Syria to track and destroy enemy assets, according to military sources.

It is reported that up to two SAS squadrons of men, around 120 personnel in all, are operating inside the borders of Syria as part of Operation Shader, which aims to destroy equipment and munitions used by the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

The troops are operating under US command as part of the Coalition Joint Special Operations Task Force.

Essentially, this is what we call penny packet operations – small individual incursions which hopefully join up to create tangible results,” on Saturday, a senior military source told the Express newspaper.

The source said the operations were seen as a way so soften up the enemy and gather intelligence for further military activities.
