An SAS trooper reportedly used a spade to decapitate an ISIS jihadi after running out of ammo during a six-hour battle. The hero soldier is said to have cut off the militant’s head with one blow after he charged at British troops during the fight six weeks ago.
According to the Daily Star on Sunday the sergeant is a veteran of dozens of battles and was forced to use the spade as a weapon after running out of ammunition. The trooper then turned the dead jihadi’s gun on ISIS fighters to kill more of them during the battle in eastern Afghanistan. A source told the paper: ‘The SAS thought they had seen their last day.
‘They made a pact that they wouldn’t be taken alive and vowed to fight to the death. ‘
Capture would mean torture and a filmed execution and they weren’t prepared to let that happen.
