Jihadists from Ahrar al Sham conduct a brutal drive by shooting style ambush against soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army in a video from 2012.

In the early stages of the Syrian Civil War, before all of the foreign support came in, brutal ambushes like this were not uncommon. Drive by guerrilla tactics, as seen in this video, are almost completely impossible to fight unless you have lightning fast reflexes behind your weapon.

Unfortunately for the Soldiers in this video, they not only lack the training to have those reflexes, but they also lack readiness as individuals. The soldiers are attacked, and killed before they even fully realize what has happened to them.
