U.N. Security Council Meets Today on Syrian-israel Clash

The Security Council will meet here tomorrow morning for the fifth session on the latest Syrian and Israeli charges in which each government has accused the other of aggression as a result of grave exchanges of firing on Israel’s northern frontier on November 13.

Although each of the governments had requested an “urgent” meeting, the Council has been taking its time. More than half of the 11 members to the Council have not even, as yet, participated in the debate on the Syrian and Israeli disputes. Tomorrow’s meeting will be convened by the December president of the body, Fernando Ortiz-Aanz, of Bolivia. Neither the United States nor the Soviet Union has as yet discussed the current issue.
