ISIS Cutting Off Water Supply to Villages That Resist Its Rule
ISIS is using a new weapon – water.
The terror group is cutting off the water supply to villages that try to resist its rule, and it’s trying to expand control over Iraq’s dams.
John Schnittker, former U.S. advisor to Iraqi agriculture, went “On The Record” to explain.
He said that Iraq is nearly 100 percent dependent on the flows of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers for drinking water, irrigation supplies, industrial uses, and power. While ISIS doesn’t control the dams, the terror group does control diversion points along the rivers, creating ample problems, from diverting to cutting off the flow of water.
