UN Peacekeeping: Saving Lives Under Fire | Pakistan | United Nations

Every day United Nations peacekeepers protect the vulnerable and help to build and protect a fragile peace.

In January this year, an ambush on a UN vehicle transporting injured civilians left a peacekeeper and several community members dead in the disputed territory of Abyei.

Those that survived owe their lives to the courage and bravery of peacekeepers serving with the UN mission in Abyei, UNISFA – and to the selfless actions of one of them.

Major Furqan Niazi from Pakistan retells his story of losing a colleague while saving lives under fire.
