1. General Bull reports that on three occasions on 21 June and again on the morning of 22 June United Nations military observers observed a light Israel reconnaissance aircraft flying east of the Israel cease-fire line. This information was forwarded to the office of the Senior Israel Representative with a request that all Israel forces respect the cease-fire line.
2. General Bull reports having received the following message from the Officer in Charge, Tiberias Control Centre, at 1420 hours GMT on 22 June:
"Situation report from team 6 at 1344 hours GMT: Overflight. Israel spotter aircraft crossed the cease-fire line approximately MR 2295-2885 flying NW-SE at 1500-2000 metres height. Circled north to south and recrossed the cease-fire line at MR 2300-2867 heading south-south-east."
3. General Bull received the following report from the Officer in Charge,
Tiberias Control Centre, at 2103 hours GMT on 22 June:
"Sporadic fire east to west across cease-fire line in OP Four and OP Uniform area, between 1927 hours GMT and 2000 hours GMT, origin of fire reported as from Syria."
General Bull advises that the Chairman of ISMAC in Damascus contacted the Senior Syrian Delegate and advised him of the above-mentioned firing. The Chairman requested that the necessary action be taken to ensure that Syrian forces in the area adhere to the cease-fire arrangement and further requested the Senior Syrian Delegate's full co-operation in its implementation.
4. General Bull has advised United Nations Headquarters that the existing resources of UNTSO do not make it possible for him to investigate allegations about the treatment of civilian population in the area of the recent hostilities, in view of UNTSO's commitments in observing and securing the implementation of the cease-fire. He has, however, used his good offices wherever possible in such cases in drawing the attention of the authorities concerned to the allegations made, and will continue to do so.
