Download PDF for this date

Parallel with the Soviet attacks against Israel at the United Nations which contain false and malicious allegations, the Soviet Government newspaper Investia came out in Moscow today with an article alleging that “Israeli troops used Nazi methods to execute Arab civilians, including women and children.”

The newspaper said also that Israeli troops murdered wounded Arab prisoners. It emphasized that the Soviet Union was intensifying efforts at the United Nations to force Israel to withdraw at once from all occupied territory.
