According to a report by ANHA News Agency, Mihemed El-Mihemed was on duty in a checkpoint near Al Jaffra oil field. Hundreds of civilians who escaped from ISIS were waiting for their security checks as an ISIS bomb-laden vehicle approached.
After attempts to hit the vehicle failed, El-Mihemed got on his car and drove it into the ISIS vehicle. The impact triggered the explosion of the bomb-laden vehicle before reaching its target, killing El-Mihemed.
The exact checkpoint was targeted by ISIS a few days later that killed more than 200 civilians.
