Download PDF for this date

Israel accused Egypt today of “gross violations” of the cease-fire agreement on Sept. 27 when four Israeli soldiers were killed in a series of nine clashes in the Suez Canal area. In a complaint to the United Nations, Ambassador Gideon Rafael charged that the Egyptian authorities were “trying to keep the area in constant tension by acts of war, which have inflict heavy casualties amongst civilians and military alike by indiscriminate shelling.”
