Isis Closes Ramadi Dam Gates, Cutting Off Water To Pro-Government Towns

Revelation 16: 12 – The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.

Islamic State jihadis have closed the gates of a dam in the Iraqi city of Ramadi that they seized last month, posing a humanitarian and security threat, officials have said. Isis fighters have repeatedly sought to control dams in Iraq, in some cases reducing the flow of water to areas under government control or flooding swathes of land to impede military operations. The Anbar provincial council chief, Sabah Karhout, said Isis “closed all the gates” at a dam in Ramadi, which is the capital of Iraq’s largest province. The move lowered the level of the Euphrates river and cut water supplies to the areas of Khalidiyah and Habbaniyah to the east, which are some of the last held by pro-government forces in Anbar.
