Fortieth year


Letter dated 4 March 1985 from the Permanent Representative
of Lebanon to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General


Further to my letters dated 21, 25 and 26 February 1985 (A/40/148 and Add.1, and A/40/156-S/16990) relating to Israel's abusive operations and practices in southern Lebanon, the western Bekaa and the Rashaya district, and on instructions from my Government, I have the honour to inform you of the following:
The Lebanese Government, which has consistently warned the international community about Israel's constant and perpetual abusive practices in southern Lebanon, the western Bekaa and the Rashaya district, condemns this new massacre, this criminal act perpetrated at Maarakah by the Israeli forces. It is not yet possible to determine fully the sad toll in terms of the number of victims. The Lebanese Government reiterates its call and appeal for the condemnation of Israel's abusive operations and practices, and for an immediate end to those operations and practices in the occupied Lebanese territories.

I should be grateful if you would have this letter circulated as an official document of the General Assembly under item 38 of the preliminary list, and of the Security Council.

(Signed) M. Rachid FAKHOURY
Ambassador
Permanent Representative
