A new video showing a female Kurdish fighter smiling after dodging a bullet is going viral on the Internet.
The video was filmed in Raqqa, Syria, and involves Kurdish forces fighting ISIS in a stronghold that has been heavily surrounded by coalition forces.
In the video, the girl fires a shot off and moments later a bullet strikes the wall, just inches from where her head was.

Conservative Tribune reports:
A translator for The Post explained that the woman in the video declared “I killed Daesh,” using the Arabic acronym and denigrating slang term for the Islamic State group. When informed that she had been almost been killed herself by the bullet that struck just above her head, she laughed and asked that the camera stop recording.
In a comment to his own initial post, Hamza stated, “Kurdish women know no fear. Your average human being would be scared for life after being so close to death, but she kept laughing.”

That woman should go buy a lottery ticket, because she has to be one of the luckiest people on this planet.
