Tap water in Syrian city under ISIS control is an undrinkable brown sludge filled with worms

Tap water in a Syrian city under Islamic State control has turned into an undrinkable brown sludge filled with worms, it has been reported.

The quality of drinking water in Al-Tabaqa, west of Raqqa, worsened after the ISIS engineer in charge of the water plant went on the run having stolen cash from the facility, it has been claimed.

There have been reports of long ‘white worms’ appearing in the filthy tap water amid concerns residents are suffering increasingly with health problems.
