West Bank doctors set to aid Syria refugees

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Doctors from the West Bank have formed a delegation to travel to Turkey in order to assist Palestinians fleeing Syria, the organizers said Sunday.

The Al-Quds Medical Association said the delegation includes 25 doctors specialized in different fields.

They are slated to spend two weeks in Turkey, but will stay longer if needed, the group said.

Doctors are preparing to leave and are waiting for orders from President Mahmoud Abbas, who requested the delegation, it added.

Some 225,000 Palestinian refugees have been directly affected by the 18-month-old uprising against President Bashar Assad.

In August, Palestinian official Muhammad Shtayyeh said around 400 Palestinians had been killed in the internal conflict, although that figure is estimated to have significantly increased in recent months.

Turkey has nearly 100,000 refugees from Syria in camps on its territory.
