Security Council May Meet Today to Close out Israel Suez Complaint

The United Nations Security Council may meet Wednesday on Israel’s complaint that Egyptian forces violated the cease-fire agreement on Aug. 26 by killing two Israeli soldiers and kidnapping a third in an ambush, an Israeli source said here today. The Council may vote on a mild resolution asking both sides to observe the cease-fire, the source said. Council members have been consulting on the issue since last week.

In another Middle East development, a UN spokesman said today that special UN Middle East peace envoy Dr. Gunnar V. Jarring will arrive here Sept. 23 to continue his mediation efforts.
