SDF take control of the Tabqa Dam's North Channel Outlet


On the 24 March, posted an article titled "Geo-locating imagery of SDF fighters around the Tabqa dam, Raqqa." assisted in the geolocation effort. While many sources reported that the Syrian Democratic Forces had taken control of the entire Tabqa Dam, the images released by affiliated media showed that they in fact only occupied the Dam's North Channel outlet, located here on Wikimapia. The difference between these two parts of the dam has led to subsequent confusion and misinformation, particularly as people try to investigate the Islamic State's claims that Coalition airstrikes severly damaged the dam.
