British sniper has not only saved hostages, but gave an ISIS leader a taste of his own medicine by blowing him up.
According to The Daily Mail, the SAS sniper fired a single round from his Barrett .50 calibre sniper rifle at the terrorist from 1,500m out.
The ISIS terrorist was about to kill 12 hostages with a flamethrower, but the bullet hit the jihadist's fuel tank. The result was a massive fireball that not only killed the executioner, but three other ISIS members.

The rescue operation took place early this month in a tiny village near Raqqa, Syria. The ISIS leader was on a US kill list for several months.
One source told the Daily Star Sunday that, “The SAS team moved into an overwatch position above a village where they were told the execution was going to take place. Up to 12 civilians were going to be murdered – eight men and four women. They were suspected of being spies.”

“The executioner gave some sort of rambling speech over a loud hailer then when he finished the SAS sniper opened fire,” the source added.
Now that's one hell of a shot!
