Alleged truce violation by Jewish forces – Letter from Egypt


DUAL DISTRIBUTION

LETTER FROM THE REPRESENTATIVE OF EGYPT TO THE UNITED NATIONS

DATED 23 OCTOBER 1948 ADDRESSED TO THE SECRETARY-GENERAL

CONCERNING ALLEGED VIOLATION OF TRUCE BY JEWISH FORCES

AND REQUESTING EMERGENCY MEETING OF SECURITY COUNCIL

Paris, 23 October 1948

I am informed by my Government that the Zionist forces in Palestine are constantly and increasingly violating the Truce and defying the cease-fire orders given by the Security Council.  This is being done to such an extent as to endanger the safety of our troops and to render it imminently inevitable for them to take the necessary counter-measures, unless the Security Council acts in proper time.

My Government, therefore, request that an emergency meeting of the Security Council be called immediately to consider these serious development.

(Signed)  M. FAWZI

Representative of Egypt to

The Security Council
