U.S OFFERS HUMANITARIAN AID AS IRAQ PREPARES MOSUL OFFENSIVE

u-s-offers

According to Media sources, The United States said it would give Iraq $181 million in humanitarian aid, anticipating a wave of displaced people when Iraqi forces launch a drive to liberate the northern city of Mosul from ISIL.

The advance on Mosul, the biggest city held by ISIL, could begin as soon as next month.

“We are now in a position where ISIL here in Iraq is increasingly on the run and on the ropes, and the urgent work ahead is to complete that effort. And Mosul, of course, is the big piece ahead of Iraq and ahead of us,” Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken told reporters in Baghdad.

On a visit to discuss planning for the offensive with Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and other officials, he said the money would be used to pre-position emergency food and relief supplies.

My husband and i felt now thankful John could round up his survey out of the ideas he came across while using the site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply happen to be making a gift of facts that some other people may have been making money from. And now we do know we’ve got the writer to appreciate for that. The most important illustrations you made, the straightforward site menu, the friendships you can give support to create – it’s got everything overwhelming, and it is assisting our son and the family imagine that the theme is exciting, which is very important. Many thanks for the whole thing!
