The ‘Sniper of Mosul’ is picking off jihadis one by one
A renegade sniper has been striking fear into the hearts of terrorists in Mosul — picking off local jihadis one by one, including an ISIS executioner moments before he was to behead a teenage boy, reports said.
The mysterious marksman — dubbed the “Sniper of Mosul” — is believed to be behind shootings in four separate neighborhoods of the Iraqi city, though officials think he could be receiving help from other sharpshooters, according to the Daily Star.
