The State Department has no information that any U.S. warship has shelled Arab lines and has not received any protest from the Syrian Government on the matter, the State Department announced today.

There is “absolutely no foundation” for a report that U.S. warship shelled Arab lines in Palestine, a Navy Department official said. He pointed out that the three U.S. vessels assigned to U.N. mediator Count Bernadotte’s truce team are under orders “to take no part in any military operation.”
