Soldier Outsmarts ISIS Sniper

I can only assume that this Iraqi soldier setup his camera to film him heroically firing at ISIS, but quickly found out that the enemy had a moderately skilled sniper zeroed in on his position.

After having several rounds land within inches of him, he decides to pull one of the oldest tricks in the book. Using whatever materials he had in his bag, he creates a tempting target for the ISIS marksman to fire at.

As we all know, when any fighters in that region of the world believe they have made a successful hit, they immediately begin jumping around and shouting “Allahu Akbar”, which likely gave him just enough time to get to better cover.
