This week, an estimated 40,000 refugees entered the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. WFP has began dry ration distributions in response to this massive influx and has dispatched enough food for 185,000 people to the area.

WFP continues to face access constraints when attempting to reach areas of need in Al-Hassakeh governorate.

As a result of insecurity, WFP has delayed its August voucher distributions to Syrian refugees across Egypt.
