A member of Britain’s Special Air Service took a cue from 1992’s “Last of the Mohicans” and killed an Islamic State terrorist with an ax.

U.S. special operations forces and SAS recently teamed up to free sex slaves in Syria from the Islamic State group. The mission took an unexpected turn, which required an elite warfighter to use an ax to defend himself.

Sources told the Daily Star on Oct. 16 that up to 30 Islamic State terrorists were killed during the covert operation. Women who refused to offer themselves up to the Sunni terrorists were reportedly crucified, dipped in acid or raped.

“The girls and their families were relocated from the village to northern Iraq where they have been welcomed and offered homes,” the source said.

The ax-wielding SAS member had been clearing rooms when his weapon jammed. Although he killed one terrorist with his rifle, a survivor charged before he could perform “immediate action” to fix the malfunction.

The ax, his weapon of last resort during the kill-or-be-killed moment, finished the job.

Evidence of torture left behind by the terrorists caused some of the special operators to break down into tears, the source said.
