LETTER DATED 7 APRIL 1986 FROM THE DEPUTY PERMANENT OBSERVER

OF THE PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANIZATION TO THE UNITED NATIONS

ADDRESSED TO THE SECRETARY-GENERAL

I am instructed by Yasser Arafat, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization to bring the following to your attention.

For the twelfth consecutive day, armed militias have attacked the Sabra and Shatila and Burj al-Barajneh Palestinian refugee camps in Beirut, Lebanon. As you are aware, for the past nine months hundreds of Palestinians have been killed and wounded in such attacks by armed militias.

I am asked by Yasser Arafat to call on your good offices to use whatever means at your disposal to put an end to these attacks against our Palestinian refugee camps.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest esteem.
