Don’t you think it’s about time we get some GOOD news? Just to know that sometimes the good guys do actually win some times?
Well here’s one for ya.
According to the UK Telegraph, ISIS has been more frequently staging public executions as the terror group loses more territory and becomes more paranoid. People are often killed after being accused of spying or deserting the fighters.
Well, ISIS was planning another one of these spectacles when they got a nasty surprise from a Royal Air Force “Reaper” drone.
Per the Telegraph, The Reaper was flying an armed reconnaissance mission when it spotted a group of fighters from [ISIS] in a main street in the town of Abu Kamal.
A statement from the Ministry of Defense said: “When a van then unloaded two shackled prisoners in front of the crowd, it became clear [ISIS] were organizing a public execution.
“Given the large number of civilians present, the Reaper’s crew could not target directly the ISIS fighters about to carry out the murders.”
The Reaper pilots, who are believed to have been flying the aircraft by satellite link from RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire, spotted two ISIS fighters posted as sentries on a nearby roof overlooking the makeshift execution ground.
The statement said: “A Hellfire missile was fired immediately, and scored a direct hit which not only killed one of the sentries but also brought the execution to an immediate halt.”
The cockroaches scattered immediately, but it’s not known if the prisoners escaped. Still you have to admit it was a darn good strike.
Now don’t you feel better already? You’re welcome.
