“As soon as his ammunition was expended, the IS gunmen tried to storm him. As they went to grab him he unsheathed his kukri and began slashing away.

“He decapitated the first gunman, slit the throat of second and killed another with a third blow. He then sliced away at three others. The IS gunmen fled in panic, allowing the SAS soldier to carry the injured men to safety.”

“He expected to be killed but thought he’d take as many of the enemy with him. When he was reunited with Iraqi troops they thought the he was seriously wounded because he was covered in blood but he explained that the blood wasn’t his,” a source confirmed the incident to the International Business Times

“He cleaned his knife, grabbed some more ammo and then led another Iraqi special forces team into battle.”

The SAS has reportedly been operating in Iraq and Syria for several years. Previous tales of their heroism have been reported. (See two of the previous reports below.
