Armored Car Escapes ISIS Gunfire
Ako Abdulrahman, a Kurdish Peshmerga fighter in Iraq, has been labeled a hero thanks to his bulletproof BMW. Abdulrahman purchased the car in an effort to keep himself and his friends and family safe in their hometown of Kirkuk, but never imagined that it would be used for anything more. However, on October 21st, hundreds of civilians were attacked by ISIS militants. Abdulrahman was able to use his bulletproof car to bring over seventy wounded civilians to safety. The governor of Kirkuk presented him with an award, and BMW offered him a brand new car, but Abdulrahman chose to keep his own, claiming he was just doing his duty as a citizen of Iraq.
