The sniper who nailed the longest confirmed kill on record by shooting an ISIS terrorist from 3.5 KM away also saved lives by preventing a potential attack.
According to Fox News, Islamic State Jihadis were preparing to attack an unsuspecting Iraqi military unit when the Canadian sniper shot the fighter. This sent the rest of the terror group running for cover.

Brigadier General Peter Dawe said “This attack was massing unbeknownst to our partner forces, because it was happening very quickly in a very dynamic sort of environment.”
“And so our team was able to engage, and not only successfully that particular enemy fighter, but pre-empt a mass attack. So that's a significant achievement.”
No other information was provided as it could endanger the lives of Canadian soldiers.
