Report: ISIS Shuts Gates of Ramadi Dam, Cuts Off Water Supply
According to a new report, ISIS has closed the gates of a dam in Ramadi, cutting off the water supply in the city the terror group seized last month.
Campbell MacDiarmid reported on "On The Record" tonight that Iraqi officials are sounding the alarm about the security and humanitarian implications of this.
He said that the Islamic State's strategy seems to have a dual purpose.
MacDiarmid explained that the water level in the Euphrates River has dropped and that is allowing ISIS fighters to move more freely.
He also said that ISIS is going to be able to travel across the river at any point and that more Iraqi forces are going to be needed to fight the group.
Watch the full report above.
