Lone Soldier Confronted By ISIS Militants - He Doesn't Go Down Without A Fight

A Special Air Service (SAS) sergeant was recently awarded for his attack on Islamic State fighters that was like something out of an action movie.

The sergeant, who has 15 years of experience, is singlehandedly responsible for slaughtering three Islamic State fighters with a single knife, killing two gunmen and injuring at least three others.

His attack occurred during an assault by Iraqi troops on the city of Fallujah, where IS was invading. SAS served as military advisors while leading groups of Iraqi special forces, the Daily Star reports. Several Iraqi soldiers were killed and four were wounded during the attack.

When the 27-year-old sergeant ran out of ammunition, he began using the knife that was given to him by a British Gurkha soldier.

“As soon as his ammunition was expended, the IS gunmen tried to storm him,” a senior defense source said. “As they went to grab him he unsheathed his kukri and began slashing away. He decapitated the first gunman, slit the throat of second and killed another with a third blow. He then sliced away at three others.”

The IS gunmen allegedly fled, which allowed the SAS soldier to carry the injured men to safety.

“He expected to be killed but thought he’d take as many of the enemy with him,” the defense source said. “When he was reunited with Iraqi troops they thought the he was seriously wounded because he was covered in blood, but he explained that the blood wasn’t his. He cleaned his knife, grabbed some more ammo and then led another Iraqi special forces team into battle.”

The sergeant received a gallantry award from the Iraqi Army, the Daily Star says.
