Alleged truce violation by Jewish forces – Letter from Egypt


DUAL DISTRIBUTION

LETTER DATED 22 NOVEMBER 1948 FROM THE REPRESENTATIVE OF EGYPT

TO THE UNITED NATIONS ADDRESSED TO THE SECRETARY-GENERAL

CONCERNING ALLEGED VIOLATION OF TRUCE BY JEWISH FORCES

22 November 1948

I have the honour to inform you that the Zionist forces, using aeroplanes, heavy artillery and mortars have launched another attack against the Egyptian positions at Faluga on 20 November 1948.

While requesting that this further violation of the truce be brought to the attention of the Security Council and the Acting United Nations Mediator for Palestine, the Egyptian Government find that such repeated acts of aggression at this stage affect the implementation of the decision of the Security Council of 4 November 1948.

(Signed)  M. FAWZI

Representative of Egypt

to the Security Council
