The most effective way to attack is the ambush. It is so effective quite simply because the victim is unprepared tactically and psychologically. It causes damage before they are aware their attackers exist, followed by confusion and fear. It’s a sucker punch on another scale entirely.
In this video, two Kurds ambush and kill several Turkish soldiers who never stood a chance.

When more police arrive he recognises the need to disengage and look for a better position. Unfortunately his tactics and skills were excellent.
The Tongo Tongo Ambush
The Tongo Tongo ambush occurred on 4 October 2017, when armed militants from the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara (ISGS) attacked Nigerien and American soldiers in Tongo Tongo, Niger, while they were returning to base from a mission. During the ambush, five Nigeriens, four Americans, and 21 militants were killed while eight Nigeriens and two Americans were wounded. The Nigerien and American soldiers were participating in a mission to gather information on the whereabouts of Adnan Abu Walid al-Sahrawi, the leader of the ISGS.
