As US soldiers struggle to contain a burgeoning ISIS-linked insurgency along the country’s eastern border, an anonymously released video depicting a US soldier firing his weapon into what appears to be a civilian vehicle could alienate locals at a time when the US war effort desperately needs their cooperation.

The footage, which was quickly pulled down after being uploaded to YouTube, has sparked an investigation into the incident and what exactly happened in the video.

The 3-minute, 9-second video doesn’t say where it was recorded, but the YouTube caption suggested it was shot in 2017,according to Politico, which recorded the video before it was pulled. For the past year, US troops have been battling ISIS in Nangarhar Province, the group’s main Afghan stronghold, where teams of special operations advisers are fighting alongside elite Afghan troops. But as ISIS' s grip on its  former territories in Iraq and Syria has been broken, the insurgency in Afghanistan has strengthened.

An anonymous user recently uploaded the video to YouTube under the title “Happy Few Ordnance Symphony,” then quickly removed it. The scene with the truck shooting begins 20 seconds in.

In the scene, which lasts just a few seconds, an armored military vehicle, possibly an M-ATV equipped for special operations troops, passes a slow-moving civilian vehicle known in Afghanistan as a "jingle truck."

Footage apparently recorded on a helmet camera shows a military-style shotgun being pointed at the truck cabin, and the window on the driver’s side being shattered as it if had been shot. The video is set to music and offers no audial cues for the clip.
