Mosul Offensive, One Month On (For the Media)

Since the onset of the Mosul offensive in October, WFP has provided food assistance to more than 100,000 people affected by the conflict with ready-to-eat food and monthly food rations. WFP currently has enough stocks of immediate response rations outside Mosul to feed 2.1 million people for three days, and almost half a million family food rations in stock, which can feed 2.5 million people for one month. WFP calls upon all parties to the conflict to facilitate unimpeded humanitarian access to all affected communities across Iraq, including civilians displaced in and around the Mosul corridor.
