    New WFP Video/Photos from Iraq Shows People Fleeing Western Mosul (For the Media)

    WFP is extremely concerned about an estimated 700,000 people still trapped in the western part of Mosul. WFP calls on all parties to the conflict to facilitate safe access to all those in need. Families from western Mosul began to arrive at camps six days after the offensive started. Since then, an average of 4,500 people have fled this part of the city every day, with the number of people arriving at screening centres and camps rapidly increasing. Since the start of the initial Mosul offensive in October 2016, WFP has provided ready-to-eat food for over 1.3 million people from eastern Mosul and the Mosul corridor. This includes families in camps and those remaining in their homes.
