Mysterious Sniper Taking Out ISIS Commanders
Fear is spreading among leaders of the terrorist organization IS in Libya, reports The Telegraph. It is because there is an anti-IS sniper at work. The unknown killer is behind the killing of three of the terrorist group's leaders in the Libyan city of Sirte. No one knows for sure who the mysterious shooter is, or whether there might be more, but so far three of IS's leaders in the city of Sirte in Libya have recently been taken out.
According to The Telegraph, the killings have probably been carried out by a sniper who learned his skills in the civil war against Muammar Gaddafi's regime in 2011. The latest victim of the sniper was Abdullah Hamad Al-Ansari, an IS-commander from the southern Libyan town of Obari. He was shot and killed on January 23, when he was about to leave a mosque in Sirte.
The killings have created panic among the IS-forces in the city, which has conducted a series of arrests and executions in an attempt to track down the culprit. Sirte has been under IS-control since last summer, and the Libyan intelligence service estimated that there are now about 2,000 jihadists there.
The identity of the mysterious marksman - if there is only one - is now being discussed vigorously on the Internet. Many believe he could be a militant from the neighboring city of Misrata. Libyan security forces fought against IS to gain control of Sirte at the beginning of last year, but withdrew after a while and ISIS took control.
Misrata commanders say they still have networks of informants and agents in the city, although IS mercilessly executes all spies. Take aim - fire at will.
