Israel continued here today to press for Security Council action, without an open meeting and without open debate, on the grievances it presented to the Council yesterday, charging Syria with responsibility for the El Fatah sabotage raids into Israel last weekend.

Israel’s Foreign Minister Abba Eban said yesterday that his Government wants immediate action from the Security Council without resort to debates that could last for weeks. Today, Ambassador Michael S. Comay, Israel’s permanent representative here, pressed for such moves in separate meetings with two of the major permanent members on the Council, Dr. Nikolai T. Fedorenko and Arthur J. Goldberg, the delegation chairmen, respectively, for the Soviet Union and the United States. Later, he met also with the delegation heads of three of the Council’s non-permanent members — New Zealand, Nigeria and Uganda. He was to consult further with other non-permanent members of the Council here. Mr. Eban had already discussed the Syrian situation with Secretary-General U Thant and with Lord Caradon, of Britain, this month’s president of the Security Council.
