LETTER DATED 13 AUGUST 1986 FROM THE DEPUTY PERMANENT OBSERVER
OF THE PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANIZATION TO THE UNITED NATIONS
ADDRESSED TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL


I am instructed by Yasser Arafat, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization to bring the following to your urgent attention.

For the second time in two days and for the fourth time in a month, the Israeli air force attacked Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. Sunday, Israeli warplanes blasted Ein El-Helweh and Mieh-Mieh refugee camps. Monday, Ba'albek camp in the Bakaa Valley and its surroundings were struck. Many Palestinian and Lebanese civilians have been killed and wounded. Children were among the victims. There is also extensive material damage.

The Palestine Liberation Organization calls on your good offices to use whatever means at your disposal to put an end to these attacks and to ensure the safety and security of our Palestinian refugee camps.

(Signed) Riyad MANSOUR
Deputy Permanent Observer
Chargé d'affaires a.i.
