Sweet: Syrian Jihad Leader Potentially Killed By “Ninja” Missile

By ninja, they don’t mean like one that sneaks up on you as such, oh, no

US forces kill jihadist leader in Syria with precision ‘ninja’ missile that chops up targets with blades

US forces are thought to have killed a senior jihadist leader in northern Syria using a rarely deployed “Ninja” missile which attacks targets with precision sword-like blades.

The Hellfire missile, or AGM-114R9X, which has a set of six folding blades instead of a warhead for minimum collateral damage, is believed to have been used to take out a commander in the al-Qaeda offshoot Hayat Tahrir Al Sham (HTS) in the province of Idlib.

The leader, named locally by his nom-de-guerre Abu Ahmad al-Muhajir, was reported to have been killed on Tuesday night when the car he was travelling in was hit by missiles in the town of Atmeh near the Turkish border, 10 miles from the US raid that killed Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi last month.

Images of the scene shared on social media show a hole in the driver’s seat of the Mutsubishi Delica, which is otherwise largely intact. Inside the car, flesh and blood can be seen and a number of large identical cut marks.

Experts point to the windows, which have not been blown out, as evidence the “Ninja” or so-called “flying Ginsu” was used.

If you buy one, get one free! And the shipping and handling is paid for by the U.S. government, most likely the CIA.

    Considering the part of the world it’s likely to be used, they should have called it the Scimitar.

    The American press cannot keep a military secret about anything.

    Most military missiles and rockets have had fold out “blades” for decades. They steer the missile. The hellfire missile itself, even without explosives, hits with enough kinetic energy to penetrate a tank. Earlier versions of this were not effective against people in light skinned Toyota land Cruisers. They would go right through and into the ground underneath, allowing all the people inside to survive. The solution was to add a fragmentation sleeve to the missile to make it do more lateral damage on impact.

    It is very likely that this is a hoax.

    I suppose if they refuse to immigrate as a refugee the United States sends their military after them.
