A “ghost sniper” has been putting the fear of Allah in the hearts of ISIS leaders in Libya, having already assassinated three of them over the past two weeks, several media sources report.
The legendary marksman has picked off those ISIS honchos one at a time in their stronghold in coastal Sirte. According to the Daily Mail, the concerned jihadists have been combing the city for the “ISIS Hunter.”
The sniper’s victims have been, to date, Hamad Abdel Hady, Abu Mohammed Dernawi, and Abdullah Hamad al Ansari. The latter was shot as he was leaving his mosque on Jan. 23. All three were commanders of ISIS units in Libya.
Italian reporter Daniele Raineri believes the ghost’s fourth victim was an ISIS preacher shot last July. According to the Daily Mail, ISIS has 3,000 fighters in Sirte, who are carrying out the usual ISIS brand of street theater, including beheadings and Crucifixions.
At this point Sirte has been largely empty, as most of its residents have fled.
Except one, apparently.
