Moroccan Government Assails Israel; Asks U. N. to Act Against Israel

October 3, 1956
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Moroccan Government issued today a blast against Israel for its retaliatory raid on Jordan last week and demanded that the United Nations act to end Israel’s “aggressive attitude and attacks against Arab countries which threaten the peace and security of the Middle East.”

The statement expressed the solidarity of the Moroccan Sultan and people with their “Jordanian brothers after the odious and deliberate Israeli attack which cost the lives of numerous innocent Jordanians.” The statement deplored the “violence which the Israelis unceasingly display and (their) jeering at the United Nations and the principles of the rights of man.”
