Smart Soldier Uses Ingenious Trick To Escape ISIS Sniper

In a trick that looks like it might have come straight from a movie (actually, we think it might be Enemy At the Gates), a quick-thinking soldier managed to escape ISIS sniper fire in the most incredible way. Penned in behind a boulder, he couldn’t move. Any movement resulted in a shot. His solution? BRILLIANT!

The young soldier is thought to be Syrian and working with anti-ISIS squadrons who are trying to take down so-called Islamic State. He’s clearly been trained well or is just independently sharp minded, because the escape┬ároutine he comes up with is totally inspired!

Talk about being caught between Iraq and a hard place… This dude is seriously smart. We love this. Watch what happened and how he wriggled free with a brilliant decoy-based trick! Check it out:
