Amazing footage has been posted online of a very near miss for one Syrian rebel camera.

In the video, a Syrian Arab Army tank pulls to a halt before turning to face the camera and letting loose. In the video, it is possible to actually see the shell as it is fired.

The fin-stabilized shell misses the camera by no more than a few feet, and then the camera is knocked down by the ensuing explosion.

The incident reportedly happened in the Jobar district of Damascus. It is unknown if there were any casualties.

Watch below to see the footage of the shell  in slow motion:
