Syrians Hit By Conflict In Greater Need Of Assistance

WFP's Ingolfur Palsson, a member of the WFP team assisting Syrian refugees in Lebanon, says that as more and more Syrians flee across the border, it's getting harder to meet their food needs. On June 7, UN humanitarian agencies revised upwards their assessment of the needs of Syrians affected by the conflict. Out of 6.8 million Syrians currently in need of humanitarian assistance, 4 million need food.
