Download PDF for this date

Israel will eater the last phase of armistice negotiations tomorrow with the Arab) states which invaded Palestine on May 15, last, when her representatives meet with Syrian delegates in the border town of Tenet, between Rosh Pinah and Mishmar Hayarden.

Pacts have already been signed with the other three states–Egypt, Lebanon and Trans Jordan–which made up the Arab League’s invasion force. Yemen and Saudi Arabia never had troops in the invasion and Iraq is withdrawing hers and turning over positions on the central front to Abdullah’s Arab Legion. Once the last armistice pact is signed the path will be clear for the calling of a peace conference.
