Marines React to Sniper Fire in Haditha

Published Nov. 1, 2021

Marines from an unknown unit react to sniper fire while on patrol in the city of Haditha in the al-Anbar province of Iraq. This is a textbook response to sniper fire.


No plan ever survives first contact, and no firefight with an unknown sniper ever looks incredibly coordinated. That said, this footage shows a textbook response to reacting to sniper fire. The Marines first establish fire superiority which opens up their ability to maneuver. Since they don't know the exact position of the sniper, they maneuver to a position of cover and begin to assess the situation. Still not knowing the location of the sniper, they dial back the violence and start to try and locate the sniper through other assets before continuing with their mission.


The unfortunate thing about this video is that there is no context left behind with it. I found the footage off of the internet under the title reacting to sniper in haditha, from a channel that appears to have long since been abandoned. If anyone who was present for this piece of footage sees this, please leave a comment with more context down below. Which unit was this? What timeframe were you deployed? What was the aftermath of this video? We really want to know.


Having the full context allows us to better keep a record of the footage we have stored on our servers, and it also serves as a historical reference for future viewers.
