RAMALLAH - An aid convoy left the West Bank city of Ramallah on Sunday carrying food and medicine in a symbol of support for Palestinian refugees caught up in the crisis in Syria.

"Today the first convoy will leave from here, from the West Bank, from Palestinian soil towards Syria," Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said at a press event marking the event.

An official donations drive netted around $650,000 worth of food and medical aid from Palestinian companies, businessmen, and individuals during the charitable month of Ramadan.

A one percent cut of salaries from the Palestinian Authority's cash-strapped public sector went toward the convoy.
