As the operation in Raqqa, Syria beings to intensify, a YPJ sniper has a close encounter with death when an ISIS sniper misses her head by just inches. Not even a full second after the fact, she is looking at the camera with the biggest grin, and it really captures what life on the battlefield is like.
At any moment, every person on the battlefield knows that their ticket could be punched. When you run into a scenario like this, you feel pretty good about dodging it. You can’t help exercising a little commando humor in the scenario and just having a good laugh about the situation with your buddies.
