Cowardly Islamic State bosses are hiding in a giant dam knowing that it cannot be bombed for fear of unleashing a dangerous flood.

The terrorists are believed to be holding high value prisoners in the Tabqa Dam, knowing that it remains safe for now.

Coalition jets from the U.S. and UK have held back from targeting the enormous dam because breaching it would deluge large parts of Iraq and Syria, causing carnage.

“If the dam is ruptured, it would flood large parts of Iraq and mean that there’s no electricity for all of eastern Syria,” said expert Ariel Ahram, an associate professor at Virginia Tech, reported Mirror Online.

“That’s an ecological disaster for Iraq and a humanitarian catastrophe for Syria.”

The dam lies 25 miles west of Raqqa, Islamic State’s de facto capital headquarters, and has been under the group’s control since 2019.

The construction of the dam created Lake Assad, which is Syria’s largest water reservoir and a vital resource in the arid region.

Islamic State militants recently limited the flow of water from the Tabqa Dam, shutting off access to water by Iraqis in Anbar province.

The Tabqa Dam is surrounded by checkpoints, heavily guarded by foreign fighters and is strictly off-limits to non-military personnel.
