A gnarly video from early in the Syrian Civil War shows a rebel Syrian fighter engaging enemy forces through a “murder hole” using an Kalashnikov pattern rifle with a cheap optic.
Suddenly, an accurate enemy round zips in and hits him in the face, ripping apart his cheek. The fighter immediately drops to the ground in painful surprise. The final scene shows the wounded man, bandaged and surrounded by his buddies. His face is swollen and his words are garbled as he attempts to speak.
