U.N. Security Council Marks Time in Debate on Israel-syrian Clash

The Security Council continued today its debate on Israel’s and Syria’s charges and counter-charges of aggression, while awaiting reports from Major General Odd Bull, chief of the U.N. Truce Supervision Organization, on what had actually taken place.

Two reports from Gen. Bull — one on Arab terrorists raids in Israel and the other on Israel’s air attack on July 14 — are expected to arrive here tomorrow. Today’s session was therefore seen as only marking time pending receipt of these reports. The delegations at the U.N. representing the United States, Britain and France are expected to join the Security Council’s debate only after Gen. Bull’s reports have been received and digested.

At today’s session, the Security Council was addressed by representatives of Iraq and Jordan, each of whom repeated all the usual Arab arguments against Israel.
