They cut the heads of aid workers and claim its done in the name of Allah, what else do you need to know?
I know it's not very Christian of me, but ISIS is filled with scum that do not deserve the gift of life and they will never be anything else because their twisted view of their faith is what drives them to perform their heinous acts. My only regret is that I am no longer fit for military service, or I'd be going out there to volunteer with those Dutch bikers!
I wonder how many ISIS fighters have had friends and family massacred by western bombs and hold the exact same opinion. Just seems like tit for tat to me. The cycle of ignorance and revenge just keeps on going

OP there is a reason you have not seen this story anywhere else.
Because its probably just made up.
You know that old saying never believe anything you read in the press it is never more applicable to the BS that the press just love to write about Special Forces.
The reason is really quite simple, joe public see's "SAS" in the headline and limitedly starts to think of real life super-hero's out smiting the evil of this world with big guns dressed as black knights. Its a "cool" story and it sells.
The official stance on anything to do with the UKSF is to neither confirm or deny, so sure the SAS are probably out there taking out ISIS but this story is probably just made up and nobody is going to confirm it or deny it. Nobody inside UKSF is going to give the press operational details such as "Yesterday we took out a ISIS vehicle this is how we done it.....". However it is pretty simple to work out that the SAS (or another UKSF element) are conducting operations just like this so the press just go with it.
The express is always running these kind of stories, not because they are true but because its what the public want to be reading about.
As a rule I always take any stories like this, especially in the tabloid press, with a generous pinch of salt.
Yeah......I have to agree.
I think most of the Isis stuff is fake.
The same with Al Qaeda.
Lots of fear but not a lot of proof.
I'm full of doubts about the whole Isis thing.
I think the US, UK and other western government have fooled us into accepting them invading any country they want in the pretex of chasing what seems to be the same group of terrorists under different names.
It won't be long before they have to bomb another country because ISIS have moved there.
