MADAYA, Syria - Trucks carrying humanitarian aid entered the Syrian town of Madaya near the Lebanese border on Monday, as part of an agreement between warring sides to let medical and food supplies into besieged areas, a Reuters witness said.

Red Crescent and UN vehicles drove into Madaya hours after departing from Damascus, while a separate convoy was set to enter two villages in the northwest of Syria under the deal.
