Category: Kuwait Local News

A Kuwait-born Irish tourist who was captured on video beating up an army of Istanbul shopkeepers after being attacked with sticks and stools has become an online hero in Turkey – but both he and his assailants struck a somber note in their first interviews after the incident.

Mohammed Fadel Dobbous, went to a local market in Istanbul’s Aksaray neighborhood to get a bottle of water, before accidentally toppling all the bottles in a refrigerator after opening the door

“They just picked the wrong man,” Mohammed Fadel Dobbous told private broadcaster Show TV on Aug. 26.

Around 15 shopkeepers then came to the shop owner’s support carrying different tools, ranging from sticks to stools.

However, the Kuwait-born Irish tourist can then be seen beating up the army of Turkish shopkeepers one by one, parrying blows as they hurled stools and sticks at him.

It later came to light that the Irish tourist had in fact been a professional boxer.

“I was not drunk. I wanted to apologize [for the incident] but they attacked me with sticks. Who are they? Shopkeepers or butchers?” he added, referring to the incident that was sparked after he accidentally spilled a fridge full of water bottles.

The video of the incident became a trending topic on Twitter, with most users declaring the man a hero.
