The apparent long-range marksman has picked off the Islamic State group leaders one-by-one in Sirte, a Libyan coastal city that Islamic militants overtook last year, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
Those militants are now combing the city for the one Libyans are referring to as the “Daesh Hunter,” according to unconfirmed social media reports.
Hamad Abdel Hady, an official in the Islamic State group’s shariah court, was the first such leader killed, according to Libya Prospect. He was shot dead on Jan. 13.
Abu Mohammed Dernawi was killed on Jan. 19 near his home in Sirte.
Abdullah Hamad al Ansari was the most recent terror group leader to die at the hands of the Daesh Hunter. Al Ansari, a commander from southern Libya, was shot as he left a mosque on Jan. 23.
Journalist Daniele Raineri said that these shootings might not be the first of their kind, saying that an Islamic State group preacher was also shot last July.
Raineri cautioned against jumping to conclusions about the sniper and his campaign against Islamic State group leaders, but that hasn’t stopped a flurry of rumors, who is shaping up to be a something of a folk hero to those living under the control of the barbaric terror group.
