A rebel recoilless gunner makes an impressive shot as he squeezes a high explosive round between two buildings to strike, and possibly even destroy, a cruising Syrian Army BMP light armored vehicle. At first, I thought that the shot could have been taken from a different angle in which the gunner had a more open view of his target, but the shaking of the camera at the report of the shot suggests the weapon system was very near the cameraman, most likely looking from the same angle. It is likely that the gunner had set up on that opening earlier and made a practice shot to ensure he was clear. Yet, his timing was magnificent, and he made the shot count.
