Islamic State (ISIS) in control of Iraq's biggest dam?

  • Sunni militant group ISIS has reportedly taken control of Iraq’s biggest dam along with an oilfield and a few towns, after defeating Kurdish forces in a 24-hour offensive. 

    “The terrorist gangs of the Islamic State have taken control of Mosul dam after the withdrawal of Kurdish forces without a fight,” Iraqi state television reported.

    However, Kurdish officials have claimed that the dam was still in the hands of the Kurdish peshmerga forces.
