Officials say the aircraft delivered 72 bundles of supplies, including more than 3,800 gallons of water and more than 16,000 meals.

Earlier Saturday, U.S. officials said that American fighter jets conducted four airstrikes against Iraqi militants firing on civilians in the Sinjar area.

Central Command says the U.S. military will continue to work with the State Department, the Iraqi government, the United Nations and others to assess the need for additional humanitarian aid.
