This is raw footage of the fight in Syria you don’t see everyday. It shows a cabal of fighting Kurds suddenly faced with a terrifying obstacle — an armored truck, packed with explosives, driven by a suicide bomber. The dilemma is real: find a way to destroy the truck before it gets to their position, or they’ll all perish with the extremist militant behind the wheel.

Watch as the fighters fire on the deadly vehicle at all cost, in hopes that the driver will end up only killing himself, and take no one else.

Fascinating commentary towards the end from the narrator detailing how the truck was ultimately destroyed not by the Kurd with the big gun who made the claim, but by a high-powered weapon supplied by the United States-led coalition.
