As per information provided by WFP, the first batch of milk have been dispatched to Tartous and Latakia WFP

As for the communication part, I will be meeting WFP next week in Damascus.
As discussed, it is preferable to wait for WFP inputs prior to any public communication (first batch is a pilot for
