The German government has announced one million Euro or USD 1.34 million assistance to support the relief activities of the World Food Programme (WFP) for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the North Waziristan tribal region of Pakistan bordering Afghanistan through a project, said German Embassy.
A spokesman for the German embassy in Islamabad in a statement said, "The ongoing military operations have displaced significant parts of the population in that area; a fact which is exhibited in the recent exodus from Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata)'s North Waziristan Agency." He further said, "The assistance would ensure the food security and nutrition of IDP in the north-west, support their return and facilitate recovery and would restore and stabilize the nutritional status of vulnerable populations in Pakistan's most food-insecure areas." Moreover, World Health Organization (WHO) has provided medicines of USD 0.25 million for IDPs of North Waziristan Agency.
Pakistan military has launched a comprehensive operation against the foreign and local militants in North Waziristan that has displaced around 0.9 million people of the area.
