The coalition against ISIS is overwhelming in size, including most of the Western world and even 34 Muslim nations.Most of our U.S. military intervention against ISIS has been limited to airstrikes, however. While we’re told by Obama that we’re going to “degrade and destroy” ISIS, it certainly doesn’t seem like it’ll be happening under his Presidency.
As for the latest threat ISIS faces on the ground, the bad news for them is they have no idea who it is.
Via the Daily Mail:ISIS chiefs are living in fear of a mystery sniper after it was rumoured three of the evil terror group’s leaders had been assassinated within 10 days of each other by a long-range marksman.
The leaders are said to have been picked off one-by-one in Sirte, the Libyan coastal city where Muammar Gaddaffi was born, which the militants took control of last year.
According to unconfirmed social media reports, ISIS fighters are now sweeping the city for the man ordinary Libyans are said to be dubbing ‘Daesh hunter’.The most recent death is rumoured to be that of Abdullah Hamad al Ansari, a high-up commander from southern Libya, who was shot dead as he left the mosque on January 23.
However, this may not be the start of such a campaign against ISIS fighters in the city.Journalist Daniele Raineri pointed out a similar assassination took place in July, when an ISIS preacher was shot dead.
The reporter also urges caution in believing what could be nothing more than ‘wild rumours’ on his Twitter account.
Even so, social media is ablaze with reports of rumours of the sniper, who has become somewhat of a hero to those living under the control of the evil terror group, according to the Libya Herald.
Boots on the ground are working for everyone else fighting ISIS. Isn’t it time we adopt that strategy too?
