An anti-tank missile just missed a tank operated by rebel forces in Syria, as the embedded video shows.

The video, uploaded Wednesday, shows a rarely-documented moment in which an anti-tank missiles whizzes by, apparently just a few feet away from the tank it was aimed at.

The tank was shelling the military airbase of Abu Duhur.

The missile can be seen and heard at about the 1:12 minute mark. Immediately after the near-miss, one of the rebel fighters instructs the tank's crew to drive back and reposition the tank at a lower and more protected position.
