ISIS terrorists began to conduct the operation aimed to flood Raqqa and its suburbs. For this purpose, they use water from Al-Assad Lake, upstream of the Euphrates River.
According to Syrian Brigadier Gen. Hassan Turki, they are planning to stop the advance of the Syrian Democratic Forces’ offensive and gain time for going to Deir ez-Zor, which can later become their new capital.
According to experts, if the terrorists manage to carry out their plan, 67 settlements will be flooded and the country significantly damaged.
