The largest package of humanitarian assistance was provided to needy residents of the Iraqi city of Mosul, UN Secretary-General deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq said at a briefing on Friday.

UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — The humanitarian aid is expected to suit basic needs of over 42,000 people besieged in eastern Mosul.

"In the single largest humanitarian aid delivery in eastern Mosul since the current conflict began, the World Food Programme (WFP), UNICEF and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) yesterday provided food, dignity kits, water purification tablets, jerry cans, baby hygiene kits and more," Haq stated.
