SAS troops authorized to use deadly force in west Mosul assault | RT UK

Britain’s elite Special Air Service (SAS) troops are authorized to use deadly force as they spearhead the assault on the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL)-held city of Mosul alongside US special forces in northern Iraq.

The Times reports that around 30 SAS soldiers, who are working alongside a reported 450 US special forces, have been told they can respond with deadly force if they come under IS fire.
