Iraqi master sniper--321 kills!

Recommended Posts

This seems the best place for my kind of news. A veteran of five wars so hates ISIS that he hunts for more to shoot on his days off from sniping. Notice his shootin' iron these days. Those 321 kills were just since he began his war against ISIS in 2015, not his, er, lifetime production. How do we clone this guy?

Erwin,

For one, Military.com thought him important enough to post a video of him. Believe it has a reputation to protect. If he got only 1/3 of the listed kills, that would still put him over the 93 of the renowned Carlos Hathcock. I thought it  noteworthy , too, that he is currently using a Barrett. Would be interested in knowing when he first got it and what his typical engagement range is. Did you notice what he said about how the ISIS guys  were pushed back about a meter when hit? Here's the link to the Military.com page with that video. Sure wish it had English subtitles.

YT version of same video below.
 

As of January 2016, he was credited with 173 kills, after beginning his personal campaign vs ISIS in May 2015. Notice his prior sniping experience.

"Sniper kills 173 ISIS fighters - Abu Tahseen 5
Abu Tahseen joined the Popular Mobilization Units as a volunteer to defend Iraq from ISIS. He as born in 1953. He is a sniper veteran of 5 armed conflicts. The Yom Kippur war, Iran-Iraq war, Invasion of Kuwait, Gulf War and today fights against ISIS. He is currently stationed at Makhoul Mountains in North Baiji. Since May 2015 he has killed 173 ISIS fighters."

Would further note he was written up on sofmag.com (Soldier of Fortune's site) and in a bunch of places. Additionally, LiveLeak has a new video of him posted February 18, 2017. SoF's people have been in conflict zones all over the world, including Afghanistan in disguise while the Soviets were there. And it was SOF which brought back previously unseen things like Russian body armor, the Spetsnaz blade shooting knife and the suppressed Makarov pistol.

Translation of what he's saying.

The Twitter feed for the Iraqi PMU, his unit, is full of goodies.
