A 63-year-old eagle-eyed Iraqi man by the name of Abu Tahseen has proven to be quite a nuisance for the Islamic State as he has single-handedly wiped out 321 jihadist fighters during various battles across the country.

Abu Tahseen is a member of the predominately Shi’ite ‘Popular Mobilization Units’ (PMU) and has participated in five wars; namely, the Yom Kippur war, Iran-Iraq war, Kuwait invasion, the Gulf War and the current war in Iraq.

The seasoned sniper is now rumoured to be stationed near Mount Sinjar in northwestern Iraq.

Tahseen is said to be a legend amongst fellow soldiers and appeared in a video clip that was posted by the PMU to their YouTube channel.

Speaking directly to the camera, the PMU sniper describes how he killed two enemy fighters that day and two the previous day, including a man named Abu Hudaifa, an ISIS commander.

Abu Tahseen loves fighting ISIS so much that when he was once handed a month break from the battlefield but returned after just 12 days.

They already did a little interview of him 2 years ago on some brit TV, he was only scoring 173 roaches at this time. Well according to the fact he was in 5 wars, he’s likely to be in the top 10 of snipers : with 321, he’s already 15th just by dealing with Daesh… This is just over Lyudmila Pavlichenko (309), the world recordman being Simo Häyhä (AKA ‘the White Dath’) (505) in… 100 days (!)
