Nobody knows him. But Islamic State (ISIS) warlords are said to be living in fear because of him. He’s the crack shot marksman known simply as the “Sniper of Mosul,” and he’s just taken out another ISIS executioner who’s about to behead a captive Iraqi teenager, reports said.
The mysterious sniper is believed to be behind shootings in four separate areas in the sprawling Iraqi city, although officials think he could be receiving help from other sharpshooters, according to the Daily Star.
Sources said he has been hunting down ISIS militants in broad daylight, with his latest hit done during a public beheading.
Iraqi news sources reported on Monday that the “Sniper of Mosul” killed the ISIS executioner with one fatal shot just seconds before he could chop off the head of the boy who was accused of supporting resistance movements within the besieged ISIS-occupied city.
