Intense GoPro Video Captures Moment Ex-Canadian Soldier Unloads Assault Rifle on Islamic State Combatants

"I accomplished more good in those 20 hours than the previous 26 years of my life."

New video posted online Monday reportedly shows an ex-Canadian soldier fire an M16 assault rifle at Islamic State combatants in Iraq.

According to VICE News, which obtained the footage, Dillon Hillier was captured on a GoPro unloading a number of rounds on Islamic State forces in Kurdish Iraq.

Another video shows the former Canadian soldier tend to a man who was injured fighting against the Islamic State.

"That's all I can do for him right now!" he shouts to others standing nearby.

According to VICE News, Hillier is the son of a conservative member of provincial parliament in Ontario and flew overseas to join the fight against the terror group.

"I accomplished more good in those 20 hours than the previous 26 years of my life," he told VICE News. "I dragged a man who had been shot in the face to safety and patched him while many others stood around not doing anything."

The videos were shot during a mission aimed at liberating "Tal al-Ward from the clutches of evil," Hillier said.
