ISRAELI AND IRAQI FORCES CHARGED WITH NEW TRUCE VIOLATIONS


Both Israeli and Iraqi forces were charged with serious breaches of the terms of the truce in the Nathanya sector of Palestine, during the period from September to 19 October, according to a decision released today by the Acting United Nations Mediator's Chief of Staff.

The decision states that the United Nations Observers reported "protracted, aggressive military activity" by both sides along the truce lines running north to south in the region east of Nathanya.

U.N. observers today reported that, meanwhile, the situation is quiet, and they are trying to arrange for convoys of non-military supplies to the encircled Egyptians in the El Faluja area of the Negev.
