Who dares…to share pix on Facebook

Gone rogue: A Facebook picture of men from the elite squad  PICTURE: SAS/FACEBOOK

THE world’s most elite fighting unit is coming in for flak after sharing pictures and stories about top-secret operations on Facebook.

Crack SAS squad members have posted more than 2,000 snaps on social media.

The photos show soldiers on training and during frontline operations — believed to be in Iraq. Others show state-of-the-art weaponry, vehicles and special equipment.

Open: Machinery can be clearly seen in the online pictures

SAS soldiers must sign a non- disclosure agreement when they join to keep operational details secret. They are also barred from sharing information about TTP — Tactics, Training and Procedures.

But the unknown group appears to have gone rogue on the web. They can be seen wearing the new style of UK combat clothing and also carrying Colt Commando assault rifles.

One picture shows a soldier with a Fairbairn Sykes commando knife strapped to his chest -suggesting he is in the Special Boat Service. Images of SAS soldiers working with military dogs are the first ever to be seen by the public.

‘The images are current and genuine,’ a former SAS source said, adding: ‘The MoD have been looking at this and I predict it will be closed down.’
