Israel Informs UN Security Council of Further Egyptian Attacks

For the second time in two days, the Government of Israel informed the United Nations Security Council today of Egyptian attacks on Israel lives and property within Israel territory.

In a letter supplementing his missive of yesterday, Mordecai R. Kidron, deputy chief of the Israel delegation here, listed five more attacks by Egyptian marauders yesterday and today. He noted that these “outrages” had resulted in at least five civilians dead and a number of civilians and soldiers wounded and stressed that the latest attacks had occurred in heavily populated areas of Israel all of which were located at a “considerable distance” from the Gaza strip.
