October 12, 1966
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Israel is being urged by the State Department to exercise maximum restraint in the face of Syrian provocations, and to seek relief through the machinery of the United Nations.

This was learned from Government sources who deplored Syrian conduct, but felt Israeli reprisal would exacerbate the situation. It was believed that these views were communicated by Raymond Hare, Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, to Ambassador Avraham Harman who called on him today. Government sources indicated that Israel asked the United States Government to use diplomatic influence to restrain Syria from allowing continued terrorist activities against Israel.
