  • Description

    THE ISRAELI ARMY REPORTED ALL QUIET ON ALL ITS FRONTS TODAY (SUNDAY), AS IT SETTLED DOWN TO OCCUPYING LARGE AREAS OF EGYPT, SYRIA AND JORDAN. THE ISRAELI'S WERE STILL ENGAGED IN SKIRMISHES IN SINAI ON FRIDAY, AS WELL AS IN SYRIA, AND THE SOVIET UNION BROKE OFF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH ISRAEL YESTERDAY, ACCUSING IT OF VIOLATING THE SECURITY COUNCIL'S CEASEFIRE ORDER.

    THE ISRAELI ACTION IN THE SINAI DESERT ON FRIDAY MAINLY CONCERNED DEALING WITH SMALL POCKETS OF EGYPTIAN RESISTANCE. PROTECTED BY ARTILLERY COVER, THE ISRAELIS MOVED IN THEIR HEAVY ARMOUR AND TROOPS. THE FORCES NOW GUARD TERRITORY MORE THAN FOUR TIMES THE SIZE THAT ISRAELI WAS WHEN THE FIGHTING STARTED SIX DAYS AGO. TODAY, THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCED IN JERUSALEM THAT IT HAD SET UP A MINISTERIAL COMMITTEE TO DEAL WITH AREAS OCCUPIED BY THE ARMY.

    THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL HEARD A REPORT FROM GENERAL ODD BULL, THE U.N. TRUCE CHIEF IN THE MIDDLE EAST, YESTERDAY ON THE DIFFICULTIES OF THE ESTABLISHING U.N. OBSERVERS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CEASEFIRE LINE. HIS REPORT, READ OUT BY U THANT, THE SECRETARY GENERAL, ALSO SAID "ISOLATED POCKETS OF RESISTANCE ARE LIKELY TO EXIST IN WHICH TROOPS ARE NOT LIKELY TO BE UNDER CONTROL OR EVEN IN COMMUNICATION WITH THEIR NATIONAL AUTHORITIES".

    THE SOVIET UNION YESTERDAY ACCUSED ISRAEL IN THE SECURITY COUNCIL OF VIOLATING THE CEASEFIRE ORDER AND CAUSED OF "LYING". IN TEL AVIV, THE ISRAELI CAPITAL, THE SOVIET UNION HAS ALREADY CLOSED DOWN ITS EMBASSY AFTER BREAKING OFF RELATIONS. ISRAELI POLICE TODAY THREW A PROTECTIVE CORDON AROUND THE EMBASSY BUILDING AS THE STAFF HURRIED TO AND FROM, PREPARING TO LEAVE.
