The hound, which was believed to have been trained by US troops, set upon terrorists during a firefight in northern Iraq
A hero dog has been praised for fearlessly attacking ISIS troops during an SAS mission in Iraq, it has been claimed.
The Alsatian attacked two terrorists during a firefight with special forces , the Daily Star Sunday reported.
It has been hailed as a hero after the fight, in which it leaped upon ISIS forces who later fled the battle.
The dog, which is believed to have been trained by the US army, escaped the incident unharmed.
According to reports, a convoy of SAS soldiers were returning from a ten-day training program with Peshmerga forces.
They were ambushed by ISIS fighters who destroyed one of the special forces vehicles with a homemade bomb.
Around 50 fighters reportedly surrounded the troops in three locations and pinned them down with fire from two machine guns.
A US soldier, believed to be on the training mission, then released the hound onto enemy forces.
The dog was shot at and missed, then it jumped onto one of the terrorists and bit their face and neck.
It then reportedly jumped on another jihadi and bit his arms and legs, before both men ran away screaming.
