Iraq: Watch Kurdish blacksmith build APC to fight ISIS

Kurdish blacksmith Shebhaz Sindi is doing his part in the fight against IS by constructing armoured vehicles for Kurdish Peshmerga fighters. SOT. Shebhaz Sindi, Blacksmith (in Arabic): “We thought of this project after we saw what was happening and how people were fleeing from Sinjar. We needed to build something to defend the people and ourselves. We thought of this project out of need.” The vehicles are customised trucks reinforced with several layers of steel to protect against bullets and other weaponry. After IS took over large areas of northern Iraq, the Peshmerga announced their need for heavier weapons in order to fight IS. Sindi’s nothing else if not innovative.
