About the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People

The attacks perpetrated on several occasions by Israel against Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon have caused the death of several Palestinian civilians. It is to be feared that, if Israel continues its acts of violence and destruction, the victims of such brutal aggressions will soon engage in counteractions, which would bring about an escalation of the violence.
It seems obvious that -- as, indeed, the Israeli leaders have expressly stated - the intention of the Israeli Government is to destroy the infrastructures of PLO, the organization which has been recognized by the United Nations as the representative of the Palestinian people.
The Committee is naturally deeply concerned at these recent events, which are exacerbating tensions and are all constituting obstacles to a peaceful settlement of the Middle East problem. It is vital to draw the attention of Israel to the dangers involved in the acts committed against the Palestinians in Lebanon.
I should be grateful if you would have the text of this letter circulated as a document of the General Assembly, under item 31 of the preliminary list, and of the Security Council.
