This is incredible—a 2-mile sniper shot hits its target, taking out an ISIS fanatic who was up to no good.
ISIS has no chance and I am unsure why they think they have a chance.
Is it stupidity or ignorance?
This is a pretty brutal skillset for a Canadian sniper, hitting a target 11,300 ft. away. The closest the US came to this record is 7,545 ft.
The Sun reported:
A HERO sniper took out an ISIS fanatic with an incredible 11,300ft shot – measuring two miles – the longest confirmed kill ever recorded.
A member of Canada’s Joint Task Force 2 killed the insurgent with a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle during an operation last month in Iraq, according to reports.
Sources wouldn’t reveal the names of the elite sniper and his partner or the exact location where the shooting took place for operational reasons.
A military source told the Globe and Mail: “The shot in question actually disrupted a Daesh [Islamic State] attack on Iraqi security forces.
“Instead of dropping a bomb that could potentially kill civilians in the area, it is a very precise application of force and because it was so far way, the bad guys didn’t have a clue what was happening.”
The source stressed the operation fell within the strictures of the Trudeau government’s advise and assist mission, news.com.au reports.
The shot took just under 10 seconds to hit the target and was fired from a high-rise location during an operation within the past four weeks.
The kill was independently verified by video camera and other data, according to the Canadian press.
Another military source added: “Hard data on this. It isn’t an opinion. It isn’t an approximation. There is a second location with eyes on with all the right equipment to capture exactly what the shot was.
“This is an incredible feat. It is a world record that might never be equalled.”
