British special forces are to be sent to Syria with a hit list of 20 top jihadis, half of which are British, according to military sources.
The SAS top 20 kill list mission forms one part of renewed efforts to eliminate Syria’s Islamic State (ISIS) commanders. As such, reports the Sunday Express, it will happen regardless of the outcome of Wednesday’s vote in the British parliament.
“The SAS will use the same strategy in Syria that it used in Afghanistan, when they effectively destroyed the Taliban’s middle order,” said one senior military source.
“It is now time to harvest the jihadis.”
The precise composition of the kill list, developed using intelligence supplied by the British government eavesdropping service, GCHQ, and the US National Security Agency, is secret. However, the list is believed to include the infamous former all-girl rock band member Sally Jones (pictured above), from Chatham in Kent, who converted to Islam when she met and married Junaid Hussain, 21, after an online romance.
As Breitbart London previously reported, mother of two Ms. Jones has become a vital part of the ISIS recruiting machine and has vowed to behead Christians with a “blunt knife”. Her links to the UK mean she is considered a “live threat” to national security.
British brothers Nasser and Aseel Muthana, aged 20 and 17, who left for Syria last year are also believed to be on the kill list.
Around 40 members of the SAS have already formed a series of “hunter-killer” teams with U.S. Special Forces in Syria, including Delta Force and Seal Team 6, but the number will now be doubled after defence chiefs ordered the head of Britain’s special forces to focus all efforts against ISIS jihadis in Iraq and Syria.
Other military initiatives which are to be used in the fight against ISIS include the deploying of Britain’s most sophisticated nuclear submarine into the eastern Mediterranean. The submarine is reported to be capable of launching Tomahawk cruise missile strikes on the Raqqa power base of ISIS.
