Mrs. Meir Summons U.N. Truce Chief to Discuss Syrian Border Situation

Download PDF for this date

Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel Foreign Minister, called in General C. C. vonHorn, chief of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization, today to discuss the situation on the Syrian border. Sporadic shooting was still continuing there, more than a week after a series of attacks by Syrian gunners in which an Israeli Druse was killed.

After efforts by UN armistice officials in Damascus failed to end the firing, Gen. von Horn flew to Damascus for talks with Syrian military commanders, returning to UNTSO headquarters in Jerusalem yesterday.
