Islamic terrorist killed with “secret CIA” bladed missile that does not explode
The bladed Hellfire missiles of our nightmare struck again, this time hitting a minivan in northwestern Syria.
The attack appeared to utilize the AGM-114R9X, a variant of the Hellfire missile that uses four giant blades to take out its targets with laser-pinpoint accuracy, thus cutting down on collateral damage.
The strike is said to have taken place in Atmeh, which is situated in Syria’s Idlib province and is less than five miles away from the Turkish border.
Two individuals are reported to have been killed, with one believed to have ties to the Al Qaeda spinoff group Hayat Tahrir Al Sham (HTS).
Chatter from HTS WhatsApp groups claim the person killed is Abu Ahmad al-Muhajir, a foreign trainer of the elite force of the HTS, “The Red Bands”
According to The Drive, photos show the smashed-up van still largely intact, save the gaping hole in the roof. No explosive warheads appeared to have been on the missile, pointing to indications that the device used was, in fact, a R9X variant of the Hellfire.
R9Xs appear to be used in cases where high-value targets often hide in collateral damage-prone areas, such as when one was used against Abu Khayr Al Masri, then Al Qaeda’s number two leader, as he drove his car around the Syrian city of Al Mastouma in 2017.
According to the WSJ, the secret weapon is used by the CIA and Pentagon, which have worked hard at keeping it a secret.
The bladed head performs “pinpoint airstrikes, killing terrorists with no explosion, drastically reducing damage and minimizing the chances of civilian casualties.”
