An unknown shooter has begun to hunt the leaders of the detachments of the terrorist organization “Islamic State” (IS, prohibited in the Russian Federation) in the Libyan city of Sirte. This was reported by the Belgian newspaper Morgen.
“From 13th to 23nd January, an unknown sniper eliminated three local leaders of the IS. On January 13th, a Sudanese national Hamad Abdel Hadi was killed, on the 19th January, his successor, Abu Mohammed al Dernawi was killed, and on January 23rd – influential field commander Abdullah Hamad Ansari was killed,” reports the newspaper. The publication cites local sources, which spoke about the high training level of the sniper: all terrorists were eliminated in areas where they felt safe, all the shots were notable for their utmost precision, and skilled fighters were unable to determine where the shooting was coming from. Currently in Sirte, which is the stronghold of the IS in Libya, militants are carrying out a massive operation to sweep the city. In Sirte, currently, there are about 3 thousand militants.
