Canadian sniper break’s world record killing ISIS Militant 2.2 miles away
A remarkable world record has just been made in the war zone of Syria. A Canadian sniper successfully hit his target, an ISIS militant 3,540 meters away, can you believe that? The confirmed kill means that the Canadian sniper has broken the world record for the longest confirmed kill. By putting down the militant, the sniper disrupted a dangerous operation.
For security reasons, the name of the sniper has been withheld. Although it wasn’t sure where exactly the shot was taken, it was presumably at a war zone in Iraq. The sniper was part of Canada’s Special Forces division, Joint task force 2 who usually participates in some of the most dangerous military operations.
