Furthermore, and in follow-up to my previous letters to you, dated from 29 September to 28 November 2000 (A/55/432-S/2000/921; A/55/437-S/2000/930; A/55/450-S/2000/957; A/55/466-S/2000/971; A/55/474-S/2000/984; A/55/490-S/2000/993; A/ES-10/39-S/2000/1015; A/ES-10/40-S/2000/1025; A/ES-10/41-S/2000/1046; A/ES-10/42-S/2000/1068; A/ES-10/43-S/2000/1078; A/ES-10/44-S/2000/1093; A/ES-10/45-S/2000/1104; A/ES-10/46-S/2000/1107; A/ES-10/47-S/2000/1116; A/ES-10/48-S/2000/1129), I regret to inform you that, since my last letter, dated 28 November 2000, and until today, 16 more Palestinians have been killed, which brings the total number of deaths to 266 Palestinians. (The names of the 16 martyrs are annexed.) Scores of Palestinian civilians were also wounded during the same period, many of whom remain in critical condition.
With regard to the urgent issue of providing protection to the Palestinian civilians under the Israeli occupation and the efforts to establish a United Nations monitoring force, we welcome the step taken by the members of the Non-Aligned Movement Caucus who are members of the Security Council to table a draft resolution in this regard. We call upon the Security Council to expedite its consideration of this matter and to take the necessary steps in this regard as soon as possible. The establishment of a United Nations monitoring force will definitely save lives and make the situation on the ground better, and will thus enhance the potential for peace in the region.
I would be grateful if you would arrange to have the text of the present letter and its annex distributed as a document of the tenth emergency special session of the General Assembly and of the Security Council.
