    WFP Exclusive Video Shows First UN Team to Visit Formerly Beseiged Deirr Ezzor, Syria (For the Media)

    For 17 months (April 2016 until August 2017) the World Food Programme ran an airdrop operation on behalf of the entire UN in Syria. Airdrops were a lifeline for the people trapped inside Deir Ezzor City. Following the lifting of the 31/2 year long siege by ISIS, this week WFP went on a milestone mission to the city to document the effects of three and half years of living under siege. This is the first mission for any UN personnel since mid-2014 when the entire governorate became inaccessible.
