As the SAS ‘breach team’ entered a courtyard, they were confronted by a group of heavily armed jihadis.
One of the brave Brits fired at them with his Benelli M4 Super 90 semi-automatic shotgun, killing three would-be bombers.
Another two terrorists appeared from a building and he reportedly shot them dead as well.
Several other jihadis then emerged, but immediately surrendered after seeing two of the bodies “didn’t have heads”, reports claim.
One source told the Daily Star that the five were killed in less than seven seconds.
“The terrorists were no more than a few feet away when the SAS team came face to face with them,” the source said.
“They had just finished morning prayers and were loading weapons into a vehicle. We now think they were about to carry out an attack.
“One of the breach team opened fire…it was a case of bang, bang, bang, then bang, bang. It was over in seven seconds.”
Suicide vests filled with slabs of plastic explosives and ball bearings were found on two of the dead jihadis.
The vests are understood to have been designed for mass casualties.

The raid took place last autumn after the SAS, working alongside MI6 agents and the Iraqi Special Forces, had been given details of a suspected bomb factory in the Iraqi capital.
A 12-man SAS team watched the house for several days before striking after hearing reports of a planned multiple suicide bombing.
They went into action just before dawn, with a “breach team” entering through a doorway into a courtyard.
