"The UK has announced £60.5m of new funding to #SupportIraq in #DefeatingDaesh," the Foreign Office said on its Twitter page.
The new funding includes $66 million for humanitarian aid "to save lives and alleviate suffering," $7.3 million to counter "hazards," including improvised explosive devices, $2.3 million to support operations in Mosul and $4.3 for additional spending.
An international US-led coalition of more than 60 nations, including the United Kingdom, has been conducting airstrikes against the Daesh in Iraq and Syria since 2014.
Earlier this week, UK Defense Secretary Michael Fallon reassured coalition partners that the Defense Ministry would keep to its pledge to send 50 more instructors to Iraq in August and provide $1.3 million to NATO’s training mission in Iraq. He reminded allies that London had already helped train 19,000 Iraqi troops and supplied Iraqi Kurdish forces with weapons worth over $1.8 million.
