GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Fortieth session
Item 38 of the provisional agenda*
THE SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST
SECURITY COUNCIL
Fortieth year


Letter dated 21 August 1985 from the Permanent Representative of Israel
to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General


I would like to bring to your attention the latest acts of murder by PLO, and by the killers it inspires, in which innocent women and children were brutally attacked. These acts, standard practice for PLO, underscore once again the deliberate and systematic way in which the terrorists choose their targets. It is clear from the manner in which these innocent people were murdered that women and children were intentionally sought out as targets. The latest victims include:

As usual, PLO boasted of its responsibility for each of these horrors. Indeed, the slaughter of women and children is a proud tradition in PLO, firmly established in the massacre at Moshav Avivim (1970), the massacre at Maalot (1974), the massacre at Nahariya (1979) and the massacre at Kibbutz Misgav Am (1960).

I have the honour to request that this letter be circulated as an official document of the General Assembly, under item 38 of the provisional agenda, and of the Security Council.

(Signed) Benjamin NETANYAHU
Ambassador
Permanent Representative
