Humanitarian aid drops continue in Iraq

A well equipped Royal Australian Air Force C-130J Hercules delivered care in Iraq."

Displaced citizens in the war-torn Middle Eastern country of Iraq have been receiving aid drops coordinated by Australian defence forces in humanitarian relief operations.

Royal Australian Air Force C-130J Hercules aircraft have conducted several runs over the past seven days to supply struggling communities in the northern parts of the country, a Department of Defence media release explained.

More than 32 tonnes of emergency equipment has been delivered in four recent airdrops, which provided struggling Iraqi citizens with water, tents and blankets. The aid will help as the difficult winter months roll in across the region, with temperatures possibly dropping below freezing.

The airdrops took place between Thursday 20 and Sunday 23 November (Iraq time) with the care packages prepared by coalition forces at Erbil airbase, also located in the north.

Major General Craig Orme, Commander of Australia's Joint Task Force headquarters in the Middle East, said Australia's defence forces were prepared to increase relief operations as citizens face the winter months, with more humanitarian aid missions likely to take place in the run up to 2015.

"These airdrops will help support local Iraqis and are a result of careful planning by the taskforce and our coalition partners," Major General Orme explained in the November release.

The contribution of Australian forces in the region are part of a joint defence and humanitarian operation coordinated with the Iraqi Government, neighbouring Middle Eastern nations and international partners.
