Female Kurdish sniper cheats death at hands of IS

A Kurdish YPJ (Women's Protection Unit) sniper was filmed reacting after a bullet fired by an Islamic State (IS) group opponent narrowly missed her head.

The video was filmed in the IS "capital" of Raqqa as Kurdish and Syrian forces, backed by a US-led coalition, seek to force IS out.

The young woman is filmed laughing and exclaiming after her brush with death.

She then tells the men with her to stop filming, saying: "Enough, enough filming."
