WFP Provides Vital Assistance to Fleeing Syrians and Calls for Safe Routes for Humanitarian Deliveries (For the Media)

WFP is deeply concerned about the safety of civilians caught up in the violence as military operations continue across northeastern Syria, around the towns of Ras al-Ayn in Hasakeh and Tell Abyad in Raqqa.
WFP has so far provided immediate food assistance to more than 83,000 people fleeing towns in northeast Syria.
The humanitarian situation is dire especially for those arriving at the collective shelters. Many people had to flee, leaving all their belongings behind. People say what they most need is food, medicine, clothes and other daily essentials.
