British special forces on quad bikes armed with sniper rifles and machine guns have been slaughtering ISIS militants in Iraq, according to the Daily Mail.
The British special forces, known as the Special Air Service, or SAS, are one of the most elite fighting regiments in the world. They are a division of the British military comparable to the Navy SEALs.
According to British Defense sources, the SAS are killing about eight ISIS fighters daily.
The Mail reported small groups of SAS soldiers are being dropped inside ISIS territory in an effort to bring the attack to the enemy.
The soldiers are brought in by helicopter and equipped with quad bikes — or ATVs — that can have machine guns affixed to the frame.
“Our tactics are putting the fear of God into IS as they don’t know where we’re going to strike next and there’s frankly nothing they can do to stop us,” an SAS source told the Daily Mail.
“We’re degrading their morale. They can run and hide if they see planes in the sky but they can’t see or hear us. Using so many snipers takes the fear factor to another level, too. The terrorists don’t know what’s happening. They just see their colleagues lying dead in the sand.”
A former Delta Force operator Dale Comstock spoke to IJReview about what having the SAS involved means for the fight against the Islamic State.
“The SAS is very similar to our special forces. They have all the experts on a team. When I was in Afghanistan we would take guys who couldn’t even write their name and teach them to shoot, use explosives and turn them into soldiers.
“I would imagine the SAS is going to find the same kind of guys and create their own small army. I would argue that there are probably other special forces training the natives fighting ISIS. And it’s a possibility that if they are over there, they may be engaged in direct action with the enemy.
“ISIS is full of untrained thugs. They may have their weapons and know to use them. But ultimately ISIS isn’t a unit of soldiers. They don’t have any foundation to become soldiers.
“We have the best specials forces out there. We don’t just have the most highly trained experts in the world. We go into villages, build schools, provide medical services and aid. We win hearts and minds. And that’s what separates us from barbarians like ISIS.”
