    Sniper rifle yes. Trained sniper no. Good on her for having a go but that is way too much of a fair fight to be a planned military op.

    Ya, no. The impact looked to be 90 deg. to her line of fire. Someone off to the side with a firearm, hopefully rested, fired the shot for the video.

    Snipers don't stick the muzzles of their rifles out the windows of their hides. They also don't wear bright colors on their heads to help anyone take aim at them.

    My best bet is that this is an airsoft match enhanced on someone's laptop to look like a real combat scene. She's entirely too casual about the near miss for that to be a live fire scenario.

    My vote is that it's a fake.

    I'm with "TheEklerBrother",
    The impact damage on the wall is all but circular and equidistant all round the actual impact hole. this was probably a low velocity, relatively small caliber shot fired at the wall perpendicular to the wall.
    However, had she jumped back from the recoil, that WOULD have been a valid head shot.

    My bet is that it was fired perpendicular, aka 90 deg to her and likely was fired after she had moved and the scenes superimposed.

    The shot to the wall was meant as a courage under fire distraction shot, but either she fired early or the distraction shot was fired late ruining the intended effect
