ISIS battle for Mosul Dam that would spew out 4.4m Olympic size swimming pools of water | Daily Mail Online

Allied troops and ISIS are set to battle for a collapsing dam that would spew nearly 600 times the water of the River Thames onto Mosul if it breaches.

Engineers from an Italian company have been tasked with fixing the Mosul Dam’s foundations to stop more than 11 trillion litres of water (11.11billion cubic metres) from flooding Mosul.

Experts are warning their work could be in vain, and should the catastrophe happen, it is estimated 1.5million people could be killed by the floods in an impact described as ‘worse than a nuclear bomb’.
