In the past week, one of WFP’s main warehouses in Damascus was struck by mortar fire. The warehouse contains enough food for over 500,000 people for one month.

Despite the on-going conflict WFP has significantly scaled up its assistance to provide enough food for almost 1,700,000 million vulnerable Syrians in all parts of the country.
