[2 March 1955]
Further to my letter of 1 March 1955
have the honor, on behalf of the Government of the Republic of Egypt, to request you to call a meeting of the Security Council as a matter of urgency to consider the following complaint:
“Violent and premeditated aggression committed on 28 February 1955 by Israel armed forces against Egyptian armed forces inside Egyptian-controlled territory near Gaza, causing many casualties, including 39 dead and 32 wounded, and the destruction of certain military installations, in violation of,
article I, paragraph 2, and article 11, paragraph 2, of the Egyptian-Israeli General Armistice Agreement".
The Egyptian Government deems it essential that this question should be considered by the Security Council without delay.
Representative of Egypt
