Kurdish Woman Reacts To Almost Being Shot By ISIS Fighters - Finds It Amusing

A Kurdish sniper laughed at the near-miss taken by an Islamic State soldier. The bullet missed the woman's head by inches as she engaged in a shootout in Raqqa City. Disturbing footage shows just how close the woman came to death, as well as her unexpected reaction to it.

A video uploaded reads 'Kurdish women know no fear' in the caption, and apparently, it's true. A female Kurdish sniper peering over a ledge and shooting literally laughed in the face of death when an ISIS sniper's bullet just missed hitting her in the head.

The female sniper is in a window when a bullet ricochets off of a wall right next to her. Most people would react along the lines of nearly having a heart attack, wetting their pants, or looking for something to crawl under. This sniper merely ducks, then turns to her colleagues and laughs.

She continues to smile and joke at her companions, even playfully sticking out her tongue at one point, as if it's all just another day at the office. The small group hold what appears to be a light-hearted conversation.

A journalist from the area, Hemze Hamza, tweeted, "Sniper battle inside Raqqa city. Thank god the ISIS terrorist missed...Kurdish women know no fear. Your average human being would be scared for life after being so close to death but she kept laughing."

The tweet with the video clip has gone viral, and after seeing the woman's cool reaction to a near-death experience, many can't help but agree.

"And afterwards she just chats and smiles. I have so much respect for them, real heroes!" responded one person.

"Tough beautiful girl! viva the Kurds," said another.

"Every single so-called feminist should take example. She's worth 100 men or more," responded one Twitter user.

The woman is reportedly a member of the Women's Protection Unit, known as YPJ, an all-female brigade of the Syrian armed forces.

According to reports, the YPJs have been an incredible force to be reckon with. The ISIS fighters have been instrumental in helping to take back control of Kobani. Some say ISIS fears them the most, as being killed by a female is considered a disgraceful and dishonorable death for the misogynistic terrorist group.

YPJs fight even with the knowledge of the dangers they face. The women know that if they're captured, they won't just be killed, but will also be brutally raped. Instead of frightening these women off from battle, it has only strengthened their resolve. Many will resort to suicide warfare to avoid being captured.

They also played a crucial role in helping to rescue Yazidis, an indigenous Iraqi ethnic group, when they were trapped by ISIS on Mount Sinjar.

Some 7,000 fighters belong to the all-female unit, with soldiers ranging from ages 18 through 40. These fearless women have already captured a lot of attention and have people around the world rooting for them, but this latest video just shows the kind of mettle of which they’re made.
