Letter dated 3 March 1955 from the representative of Israel
to the President of the Security Council
[Original text: English]
[3 March 1955)

I have the honor, on instructions from my Govern-ment, to request that the following complaint by Israel against Egypt be considered by the Security Council at its meeting on 4 March 1955:

“Complaint by Israel of continuous violations by Egypt of the General Armistice Agreement and of resolutions of the. Security Council, to the danger of international peace and security, by means of:

“1. Attacks of regular and irregular Egyptian armed forces against Israel armed forces;

“2. Assaults of raiders from Egyptian-controlled territory on lives and property in Israel;

“3. Failure of the Government of Egypt to adopt and enforce effective measures against such acts of violence;

“4. Assertion by Egypt of the existence of a state of war and the exercise of active belligerency against Israel, particularly the maintenance and enforcement of blockade measures;

“5. Warlike propaganda and threats against the territorial integrity and political independence of Israel;

“6. Refusal of Egypt to seek agreement by nego-tiations for an effective transition from the present armistice to peace."
(Signed) Abba EBAN
