BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:34 P.M.) – The ISIS-affiliated Amaq Agency has published a picture of Tabqa dam control room in complete disarray. This has led to fears that Syria’s largest dam can collapse.

The damage was done from US-led airstrikes.

However, an engineer at the dam has said there is no need to panic yet, but critical repairs are needed as soon as possible.

“If water flow from Turkey remains unchanged, we have about 30 days to time of collapse,” the engineer said.

Essentially, Turkey with its control of the water flow have the power on whether the dam can be salvageable or not.

Kurdish-led forces have put immense pressure on ISIS in this part of Syria and are expected to take the dam in the coming day.

So now – if the dam controls cannot be repaired it is up to Turkey and Erdogan to prevent a break of the dam and a catastrophe by a new Noah’s Flood. BTW: As self declared head of the Ummah Turkey, its Sultan and the Ummah share responsibility with IS. The Sultan did not have to tie up forces needed to fight IS. IS did not have to use the dam’s control room as head quarters to shield it from air attack. Now the controls cannot be used because of the damage. But closing the flood gates during the current… Read more »

Frankly, expecting anything else than psychopathic or sociopathic behaviour from both Erdolf or ISIS is wishful thinking.

How dare You. Two billion members of the Ummah and their Sultan are guided by the word of God. Attention Irony.

p.s. That they do not respect the human, legal and political rights of others is the problem of all exceptionalist cults. Whether political: Fascism, Communism, Colonialism… or religiously motivated Takfirism … Zionism.

Sorry mon frère – I could not except those You defend. Blink.

Government sometimes pays service personel in enemy territory so that vital infra structure is repaired and maintained. Terrorist bank on this e.g. for taxing them.

p.s. To me it sounded like ex-worker that know something.
