The savages in the Islamic State group had picked a father and his eight-year-old son to be sacrifices in their sick execution game.
However, a member of the British Special Air Service made sure that they would be safe in the most unlikely of ways.
According to Express.com, the execution was about to occur after Islamic State group forces marched into a Syrian town along the Turkish border.
Seeking to “cleanse” the town, they were executing any remaining Shiite residents.
The father and his son were picked out because they refused to denounce their faith.
However, an Iraqi spy had tipped off the Special Air Service, and the elite British military force had fixed a sniper on the attempted assassination.
“Through binoculars, the soldiers could see that the crowd were terrified and many were in tears,” a source said of the execution site.
The leader of the Islamic State contingent, flanked by several guards with AK-47s, then called for the father and son to be brought before him.
“A tall bearded man emerged and drew a long knife,” the source continued. “He began addressing the crowd and slapping the father and his son around the head and kicking them onto the floor.”
That’s when the SAS sniper took action.
“The ISIS thug who was about to decapitate the father was shot in the head and collapsed,” the eyewitness said.
“Everyone just stared in confusion. “The sniper then dispatched the two henchmen with single shots — three kills with three bullets. It was a good day’s work.”
