The six-blade ‘ninja missile’ used to mince terrorists: CIA deployed two R9X Hellfires to shred Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri – a month after it was used to wipe out ISIS thug in Syria

On Saturday, al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri became the latest victim of the US military’s highly sophisticated precision missile, the R9X Hellfire

The missile uses extended blades rather than explosives to kill targets with extreme accuracy

The weapon was developed by the Obama administration as concerns grew over the amount of civilian casualties occurring due to earlier drone strikes

Since it was first deployed, officials in the government have been coy about discussing its use 

The missile’s blades can cut through buildings, and car roofs and has been referred to as a ‘speedy anvil’ and a ‘Ginsu,’ a reference to the popular steak knife
