Authorities in Pristina, Kosovo’s capital cut water supply in the city during the weekend in attempts to thwart an alleged plot by ISIL takfiri group to poison it.
Pristina’s city water board said that the decision to cut the water supply was after the supply tested positive for suspicious substances.
The decision to cut the water supply was reached after five people linked to the Islamic State were arrested. Three of the arrested were found behaving suspiciously near the reservoir while the other two were arrested elsewhere in the country.
They were accused of plotting to poison the Badovac reservoir that feeds the city almost half of the over 400,000 people.
Kosovo has been on high alert and very vigilante after a Kosovan member of the Islamic State appeared in recent propaganda video that was inciting members to use poison on food and water as a way of killing people.
Some of the measures against the ISIL include arrests that were done to prevent her citizens from joining the terrorist organization.
Kosovo has been highly against the Islamic State and has heightened security throughout the country.
