Chairman of the Arab Group
for the month of September
Letter dated 9 September 1985 from the Deputy Permanent Observer of the
Palestine Liberation Organization to the United Nations
addressed to the Secretary-General
Pursuant to our letters of 3 and 6 September 1985, I am instructed by Yasser Arafat, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, to bring the following to your urgent attention.
During the past weekend there has been an intensification of repression in the Palestinian territories under Israeli military occupation. Additional Israeli military forces have been deployed throughout the Israeli occupied Palestinian territories.
Furthermore, the Israeli occupation authorities have been actively involved in encouraging and organizing provocative and threatening marches and demonstrations by fascist Zionist settlers through Palestinian towns and villages.
Your attention is also directed to the serious threats made last week by Israeli officials against the Palestine Liberation Organization to take direct military action against PLO Offices in Amman and elsewhere if Palestinians in the
occupied territories continue to challenge Israeli military occupation.
In drawing your attention to the gravely worsening situation, I am requested to call upon your good offices to take immediate and appropriate action.
