Machine Gunner Shot, Instantly Replaced

An al Qaeda machine gunner sprays around a corner and gets shot by Syrian pro-government forces. At that point it should be obvious that the position is compromised, and an effort to relocate would be in order. Instead, the weapon is handed off to the next batter, and he steps around the same corner and continues firing. The world is a crazy place.
