PJ Media: This Badass Kurd Plunged His Bulletproof BMW Into ISIS Snipers to Save 70 Lives
After the ground offensive to retake Mosul from ISIS was launched in mid-October, Islamic State terrorists attacked Kirkuk, Iraq.
Nearly 90 civilians and Peshmerga were killed by ISIS in the surprise counterattack Oct. 21, which included suicide bombers and gunmen targeting police stations and a city power plant.
But the death toll could have been higher if one Kurd and his armored BMW hadn’t stepped in.
Ako Rahman, a member of the Peshmerga’s 116th Brigade in Tuz, volunteered to plunge into the fighting to save more than 70 people who had been wounded by ISIS, putting them in his own bulletproof car and rushing them to the hospital.
“My aim was to prevent any captives, wounded or martyrs falling into ISIS’ hands,” he told Rudaw news. “What really made me sad… many of the wounded, we reached them too late and they bled to death.”
