U.N. Security Council to Meet on Syrian Complaint Against Israel

Download PDF for this date

The Syrian delegation here today requested a U.N. Security Council meeting on Israel’s air attack on Syrian installations last Thursday which was carried out in retaliation for four incursions by Syrian terrorists into Israel within 48 hours during last week, resulting in two Israelis being killed and two wounded from dynamite explosions carried out by the infiltrators from Syria. The meeting will be covened Monday.

Doubt was expressed in United Nations circles as to whether Syria could get the nine votes needed for the adoption by the Security Council of an anti-Israel resolution, however it was considered as possible that a resolution will be adopted calling on Israel and Syria to restrain themselves.

(From Israel it was reported today that Syrian positions fired on an Israeli patrol boat in the Sea of Galilee which is entirely inside Israel territory. The patrol boat returned the fire.)
