Download PDF for this date

Conditions along the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip were described to the General Assembly’s Special Political Committee here today by Lt. Gen. E. L. M. Burns, commander of the United Nations Emergency Force.

Gen. Burns told the committee that it was possible to maintain a peaceful situation along the demarcation line only because there are enough UNEF troops to man the sentry posts night and day. He cautioned the committee against reduction in the size of the Force.
