(NSFW) IDF Tanker Sniped By Hamas Marksman

Hamas released footage of a sniper operation in which an IDF soldier was sniped from a topside port of a Merkava tank in the West Bank.


If the B-roll type footage showing the rifle is authentic, it means the soldier was hit by an incredibly powerful round of a 12.7mm anti material rifle and there is no chance that any form of body amor would have stopped it. Although it also appears that the round may have hit him high on the shoulder, which would be his best bet for survival in that situation. It's unclear if the soldier survived the hit, and even if he did, significant trauma would have been inflicted.
