UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (Jul. 21)
SYRIA COMPLAINS TO U. N. AGAINST ISRAEL’S “PLANNED” ACTION
The charge that Israel is “attempting” to resume canal digging in the demilitarized zone of the Israel-Syrian border was made in a memorandum submitted yesterday to the Security Council by the Syrian delegation at the United Nations. The work was halted temporarily last October.
The Syrian delegation did not ask for any action on the part of the Security Council. The memorandum merely said that “there are signs of intense activity” on the part of Israel outside the demilitarized zone and that Syria would not consider herself responsible for the “inevitable consequences of any resumption of work in the demilitarized zone.”
