GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Forty-first session
Item 37 of the preliminary list*
THE SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST
SECURITY COUNCIL
Forty-first year


Letter dated 8 May 1986 from the Chargé d'affairs a.i. of the
Permanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations
addressed to the Secretary-General


The PLO's campaign of terror against the civilian population of Israel continues unabated. I would like to direct your attention to the following recent incidents.

This assertion is in the long-standing tradition of PLO fabrication about its terrorist activity. Although Katyusha rockets were launched, they fortunately never reached any target. The PLO announcement, however, reflects the will and intent of the PLO to attack civilian targets.

These recent terrorist incidents demonstrate the indiscriminate manner in which the PLO, by its own admission, targets innocent civilians for its acts of terrorism. They further demonstrate that preventing PLO terrorism requires forces explicitly committed to and organized for the defence of the areas against terrorism.

For its part, the Government of Israel will continue to take appropriate measures to protect and safeguard its citizens.

I have the honour to request that this letter be circulated as an official document of the General Assembly under item 37 of the preliminary list, and of the Security Council.

(Signed) Johanan BEIN
Ambassador
Chargé d'affairs a.i.
