Syria Prepared to Seek U. N. Action in Huleh Dispute

The Syrian delegate to the United Nations, Rafik Asha, yesterday declared that Syria was prepared to seek further UN action if Israel persisted in her refusal to halt work on the Lake Huleh project, as demanded by Syria and endorsed by Maj. Gen. Vagn Bennike, UN truce chief in Palestine.

Mr. Asha, who expressed approval of Gen. Bennike’s stand, suggested that the Israeli refusal to go along with Gen. Bennike should be reported to the UN Security Council.
