WATCH: Lady Sniper’s Insane Reaction to Nearly Getting Head Shot Off by ISIS Goes Viral
Some absolutely insane footage has surfaced this week on Twitter this week, with a clip of a female Kurdish sniper laughing and smiling after an ISIS militant attempted to blow her head off, only just missing her by a hair.
The sharpshooter is a member of the YPJ (Women’s Protection Units) and can be seen carefully aiming from a balcony in order to engage in a sniping duel with an ISIS sniper who is holed up in the embattled ISIS base in Raqqa, which is in the northern part of Syria.
A shot flies back at her immediately after she has taken her shot carefully, with a piece of wall exploding and falling away just behind her head, covering the team with debris and plaster.
Most people, including myself, would probably lose their minds, sh*t themselves and call an end to their career as a Kurdish sniper, but not this woman, no way! She just ducks down, looks around laughing and smiling right as the Grim Reaper had come to take her away.
The video was posted by the Kurdish journalist Hemze Hamza on Twitter, who is embedded with the YPJ fighters at the moment. The tweet that was included with the footage said: “Kurdish women know no fear. Your average human being would be scarred for life after being so close to death but she kept laughing.”
The YPJ is basically the all-female team within the Kurdish military arm of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, known as YPG. The YPG was instituted in order to defend Kurdish civilians from the ISIS militia and other terrorist enclaves.
The YPJ team is a multicultural team too, comprised of Arabs, Circassians, Assyrians, Kurds and other foreign daredevils. It started in late 2014 where it began life as a Kurdish resistance movement, amassing a group of about 10,000 freedom fighters between the ages of 18 and 40. That number has now ballooned to about 20,000 as last reported in November of 2016.
This group of certified badasses may be coming under increased attacks from ISIS and other terrorist organisations of late, but these women laugh not only in the face of danger but at bullets that are sailing right toward their heads. It’s insane. They’ve seen way too much sh*t in their time to be intimidated by ISIS thugs, and it’s absolutely amazing.
