Israeli-syrian Armistice to Be Signed Today; Mixed Commission Will Be Established

The Israeli-Syrian armistice agreement will be signed by both parties at 10 A.M. New York time tomorrow, it was officially announced here today.

The pact does not completely settle all problems at issue between the two states, Al Hamishmar, organ of the left-wing Hashomer Hatzair, declares today. Quoting military sources, the publication says that the pact provides for an armistice commission which will deal with problems left unsettled in the agreement.

The mixed commission will begin functioning this week, and will consider the problem of exchanging prisoners and arranging permanent communications between various Israeli-held points along the front lines.
