The ninja guard cannot move beyond 2 squares and only move diagonally - I think that is clear. 

What you are asking should be possible IF there is no empty square between the friendly piece and enemy piece as in diagram  described by the line:
'It can capture the pawn on b6 by jumping over the knight at c5.'

Are you asking if there is an empty square after the knight on c5 (b6 was empty) if it can capture a piece say on a7? The answer is NO since it can only jump or move 1 or 2 squares diagonally. 


I will reword the description - there seems to be some confusion with it.
