American soldiers rescued a would-be Egyptian terrorist who rammed into their convoy while they were driving along a Kuwaiti highway, causing it to catch fire.
The US embassy said 28-year-old Ibrahim Sulaiman intentionally crashed into them during what has been called ‘an attempted terrorist attack.’
While all three US troops in the truck escaped unharmed, the assailant suffered injuries and was rushed to hospital after being pulled from his burning garbage truck by the soldiers.
Kuwaiti authorities had earlier said five American soldiers were involved.
The Interior Ministry published pictures of the aftermath of the crash showing a wrecked garbage truck along with items it described as a suicide belt loaded with shrapnel.
The white pickup truck apparently carrying the soldiers had the left side of its bed smashed in.
The embassy did not say where the troops were stationed, but American forces are deployed to Kuwait’s Camp Arifjan.
