The UN World Food Program is ready to deliver a month of rations to the Old City of Homs in Syria for 2,500 people once it gets a green light from all sides, WFP spokeswoman Elisabeth Byrs said Tuesday.

“Once all parties on the ground allow the inter-agency convoy to proceed, WFP will deliver to the Old City 500 family rations and 500 bags of wheat flour, enough for 2,500 people for one month,” Byrs told Reuters.
