Special Forces With ‘Shoot To Kill’ Orders Deployed On London Underground

Armed special forces are being deployed on the London Underground and have been ordered to ‘shoot to kill’ terrorists.

Members of the SAS and the Special Reconnaissance Regiment will be working on London’s busy tube network monitoring suspicious passengers

Some of the troops will patrol the underground in pairs, disguised as couples.

The Mail Online reports:

They will be armed with Glock 9mm semi-automatic pistols so they can ‘take down’ potential gunmen and suicide bombers, reports the Daily Star Sunday.

Those in the special covert teams have been trained at the SAS base in Hereford for the past few months.

A source said they are trained in ‘rapid-fire techniques’ and told the newspaper: ‘The task force is comprised of some of the most experienced special forces personnel in the Army.

‘The unit is composed of some of both male and female personnel from the Special Reconnaissance Regiment who are trained killers and can pose as couples while travelling on public transport.’

The paper also reports that the trained staff have been given ‘soft-nose’ bullets to limit the risk of other passengers who are travelling on public transport.

It comes as two men were arrested in connection with the Parsons Green bucket bomb attack which left 30 people injured on Friday.

A teenage suspect, believed to be an Iraqi refugee, was detained in the Port of Dover after being tracked to its departures hall, but it emerged he had been arrested at Parsons Green a fortnight before the blast.

A second suspect, a 21-year-old man, was later arrested in Hounslow, with police also swooping on a house in Stanwell, Surrey, directly opposite Heathrow airport.

    Now we see one of the outcomes from these bogus and incompetent ISIS attacks. Future shoot to kill policy under the guise of fighting terrorism. We have NOT even asked the question is it wise to use semi-automatic guns in a confinced space?
