Washington, Paris Informed of Developments; U.S. Urges Reliance on U.N.

Israel today transmitted detailed data to the State Department on the most recent Arab terrorist incursions into Israeli territory. The Department is being kept fully informed on findings and developments.

(In Paris, the French Government was informed by Israel today of the facts concerning the latest El Fatah attacks. The influential Parisian newspaper Le Monde emphasized in its reports on the situation that it did not believe Israel “would stand with arms folded in the face of the Arab attacks.”)

The United States Government is urging restraint on both Israel and Syria in the wake of the most recent border friction, U.S. sources said here today. State Department officials said the proper course of action is the referral of the matter to the United Nations for adjudication through U.N. machinery.
