Javits Urges Security Council to Malt Syrian Aggression

Sen. Jacob K. Javits urged the United Nations Security Council last night to act to cause Syria “to halt aggression by guerrilla activities against Israel.” Speaking at a dinner here sponsored by State of Israel Bonds, the New York Republican cited the “tragic incident” last Saturday when a jeep carrying six border policemen hit a Syrian mine, killing four of the Israelis and wounding two. Sen. Javits said he hoped also that U.N. Secretary General U Thant would “put the full weight of the truce machinery” of the U. N. behind the effort to bring a halt in the Syrian-backed guerrilla raids. Israel’s Foreign Minister Abba Eban also addressed the meeting.
