The last remaining stocks of food rations are currently being distributed in Syria's rebel-held eastern Aleppo and there will be nothing left to hand out next week without a resupply, the UN said Thursday.

"The reports we have now from within East Aleppo is that the last food rations are being distributed as we speak," the head of a UN-backed humanitarian taskforce for Syria, Jan Egeland, told journalists.
