Download PDF for this date

Some of the most outstanding of the hundreds of complaints and cross-complaints which have piled up for action by the Israel-Jordan Mixed Armistice Commission in the seven months since Israel walked out of that body were discussed by the MAC today as Israel officially attended its first meeting since agreeing to rejoin the unit.

Presiding at the session was Maj. Gen. E.L.M. Burns, chief of staff of the United Nations truce supervision organization. Lt. Col. Charles F. Brewster, new chairman of the MAC, attended the session.
