Lebanese Christian Group Urges Peace with Israel; Jews Deny They Attacked Faluja Arabs

The Lebanese National Party, one of two Lebanese Christian political groups, decided at its recent convention to demand that Lebanon make peace with Israel, it was reported here today.

An Israeli Government spokesman denied today that there was any foundation whatsoever for Egyptian charges of attacks by Israel forces on the beleaguered Egyptian garrison at Faluja.

The country was entirely quiet, the spokesman said. United Nations truce observers at Haifa had no comment on the Faluja question, but it was understood here that a group of U.N. observers who went to Faluja to check on the Egyptian complaints found the area quiet.
