UN alarmed over IS distributing food in Syria


United Nations, United States:  The UN’s World Food Program is extremely concerned about images circulating on social media showing WFP food boxes bearing Islamic State in Syria (ISIS) labels. WFP is trying to verify the authenticity of the photographs, where they were taken and the circumstances surrounding this incident. The photographs seem to have been taken in Dayr Hafr, in eastern rural Aleppo governorate about 50 kilometers from Aleppo city.  WFP last reached Dayr Hafr on August 5, 2014, through a cross-line convoy that delivered 1,700 food rations, enough to feed 8,500 people for one month.
