Terrorists Thought They Would Blow Up an Army Checkpoint. This Hero Tank Driver Had Other Ideas

Egypt is currently facing an influx of terrorism as extremist groups attempt to unseat the government. A steep rise in terror attacks and attempted terror attacks have been taking place, particularly in the Sinai Peninsula.

One day in July, a car packed with explosives and carrying four armed terrorists sped toward an army checkpoint. The terrorists’ plan was to drive the car as a suicide vehicle into the army outpost and then to get out and start shooting.

Dozens of people in vehicles were gathered at the checkpoint and were vulnerable to the imminent attack, which few saw coming. Tragedy and great loss of life would have occurred — had it not been for the incredible, brave actions of one Egyptian tank driver.

In the dramatic video above, you can watch the hero tank driver save lives. Once the threat was identified, the tank races to meet the terrorist suicide vehicle, confronting it head-on and flattening it, then rolling back over it again.

The danger of the attack was evident moments later, when the car ignited in an enormous blast.

That the attack could have been much, much worse, if not for the selfless actions of the tank driver:

An Egyptian Army spokesperson claimed that up to 50 civilians and military personnel were saved from death.

He added: “The armed forces reiterates that such terrorist acts only strengthen our determination to continue to eradicate this terrorism in our beloved Sinai from the roots.”

“The armed forces will continue to sacrifice all that is precious, our sons’ lives, in order to preserve and protect this nation and its great people.”

The Egyptian military has been waging a battle in the remote Sinai peninsula against insurgents backed by ISIS.
