It’s like a modern version of 300. 2,500 Kurds defied the odds against 12,000 ISIS terrorists with some supreme marksmanship.
A sniper who fought alongside the Kurds claims he and a fellow sniper killed as many as 750 terrorists during a battle for the town Kobani, in northern Syria.
Azad Cudi, who says he killed 250 terrorists, traveled to Syria in 2013 to fight with the YPG forces once they came into conflict with the Islamic State group.
In his book “Long Shot: The Inside Story of the Snipers Who Broke ISIS”, the 34-year-old describes how the Kurdish snipers held off the advancing terrorists despite the odds being stacked against them.
If anything, it’s like a modern version of 300. Cudi wrote that 12,000 ISIS fighters attacked Kobani in 2014 and there were just 2,500 men and women of the YPG to stop them.
Cudi wrote that ISIS had artillery, mortars, tanks and heavy machine guns. Meanwhile, “We lacked the most basic equipment, right down to binoculars and radios, ate whatever we found in the kitchens of abandoned houses and armed ourselves with forty-year-old Kalashnikovs and a few boxes of ammunition.”
“If surviving these odds was already a figurative long shot, our meagre tools ensured it would also require literal ones,” Cudi said. “Sniping – killing the invaders one by one – was one of the few tactics available to us.”
During the battle, Cudi says he killed 250 terrorists while a fellow sniper killed as many as 500.
