62-Year-Old Shia Militia Volunteer Fighting ISIS

Abu Tahseen is a veteran sniper who has killed around 173 ISIS fighters in Iraq. He was 62 when he volunteered to join the fight against jihad in his home country.

Mr. Tahseen has fought in five conflicts. He is able to expertly spot the target, then shoot. He says, "sweet" before praising Mohammed. Footage also shows the gray-bearded Tahseen allegedly shooting and hitting a militant from the mountains in Iraq. After joining the Popular Mobilization Units to defend Iraq, he has been stationed at Makhoul Mountains in North Baiji. He has been fighting since May of 2015.

His bullets are longer than his fingers. He says it "pushes him back one meter before putting him down." He is also proud of the area he defends by saying, "You see this area--I guarantee to god no-on would come up it." Once, he was given a month off, but he came back just 12 days later.

He would settle to take aim and talk to his spotter. He asks his spotter, "He's sitting next to him, right? or am I mistaken?" The spotter agrees he can see their heads showing. Mr. Tahseen then peers through, takes aim and presses the trigger, while trying to control the kickback. He watches until he sees the shot hit his target.

Fighting for a Shia militia he says, "Sweet. Prayers to Mohammed and his family. Yes. Down in the valley."
