Video: UNHCR launches major aid push for Iraq with 100-Ton airlift to Erbil

In response to the deteriorating situation in northern Iraq, UNHCR this week launched one of its largest aid pushes aimed at helping close to a half million people who have been forced to flee their homes. On August 20 a cargo jet carrying 100 tons of emergency relief supplies landed at Erbil in Iraq’s Kurdistan region, launching a UN refugee agency aid operation for hundreds of thousands of people caught in Iraq’s worsening humanitarian crisis.
