Three Islamic State bosses are thought to have been taken out by the same sniper according to local reports.
The terror group leaders have been assassinated in the coastal city of Sirte, home town of Muammar Gaddaffi, which ISIS took control of last year.
ISIS troops are said to be sweeping Sirte for the shooter know as the ” Daesh Hunter’.
The first boss to be killed is a Sudanese national called Hamad Abdel Hady, nicknamed Abu Anas Al-Muhajer, according to Libya Prospect .
Al-Muhajer is thought to have been an official in the local sharia court.
Next in the firing line was Abu Mohammed Dernawi, killed on January 19 near his home in the city.
Then on January 23 Abdullah Hamad al Ansari, a commander from southern Libya, was gunned down as he left a mosque.
One source said there is now a “state of terror” in the Islamic State ranks.
Militants “randomly shot in the air to scare inhabitants” while looking for the sniper, they added.
The enigmatic gunman is thought to have become something of a hero to those living in the city under the ISIS yoke.
Earlier it emerged that a TOWIE -loving British mum who took her toddler to Syria and joined Islamic State funded the trip with her student loan .
Tareena Shakil reportedly got the cash a month before she secretly travelled to the terror group ‘s stronghold of Raqqa.
The 26-year-old told her family she was going on a beach holiday to Turkey.
