For this kind of courage we can even overlook the vertical video syndrome. Watch this young woman laugh in the face of death.
A Kurdish YPJ (Women’s Protection Unit) sniper was filmed reacting after a bullet fired by an Islamic State (IS) group opponent narrowly missed her head.
The video was filmed in the IS “capital” of Raqqa as Kurdish and Syrian forces, backed by a US-led coalition, seek to force IS out.
The young woman is filmed laughing and exclaiming after her brush with death.
She then tells the men with her to stop filming, saying: “Enough, enough filming.”
That shot missed her by inches and it didn’t appear to shake her resolve.
