Is a secret sniper killing off Isil’s high command in Libya?

As befits all the best practitioners of his shadowy trade, no-one is quite sure whether he is one man or many, or even simply an urban legend.

But after a string of assassinations of its local henchmen, the Islamic State’s new “Caliphate” in the Libyan city of Sirte is abuzz with talk that an anti-Isil sniper is at work.

In recent weeks, no fewer than three Isil commanders in Sirte have been shot dead from long range, according to local media.

    Good for him. There are a few other locations which could use a secret sniper.

    • I suspect an SAS team or something similar is operating there.

        Maybe Obama trying to “contain” ISIS at least until after the election. Obama’s brain is all politics, and I doubt he wants national security to influence the election. I wouldn’t even be surprised if he creates a distraction, with the economy, or something else.

        I agree the SAS has some of the best snipers in the world.

        • You’re a terrible Pope. I’ve been wanting to tell you that for some time.

            I can’t disagree I’m killing time reading news articles about mysterious snipers.

          U.S. Marine Scout Snipers are better.
          Just saying… 😉

    You guys are forgetting but Canada has some of the finest snipers of anywhere.
    Canadian snipers are highly regarded.
