The World Food Program has delivered food to more than 30-thousand people in and around the northern Iraqi town of Qayyarah. 

The town was under siege by ISIL militants for over two years before being freed by Iraqi security forces in late August. A UN spokesperson said that the food rations will provide enough food for a full month. The town will become a staging ground for government troops to launch offensives on Iraq's last major ISIL stronghold in Mosul.
