Download PDF for this date

Israel Ambassador Avraham Harman met today with Raymond Hare, Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, to discuss the continuing Near East crisis brought about by Syrian terrorism inside Israel.

The details of the meeting were not revealed, although highly-placed official sources today reiterated that Israel is being urged to forego any reprisal action, even if there are further Syrian provocations. The State Department’s thinking was described as the pursuit of de-escalation of tensions, by influencing such nations as may be involved to resort to United Nations appeals, rather than to violence.
