Letter dated 24 June 1986 from the Permanent Representative
of Jordan to the United Nations, addressed to the Secretary-General


I have the honour to draw your attention to the latest information contained in the annex concerning the activities and practices of the Israeli occupation authorities. in the occupied Arab territories during the month of May 1986. These activities and practices clearly indicate that Israel persists in its policy of confiscating Arab lands and continues to execute its colonization plans aimed at depriving the Arabs of their lands and their means of support by making them emigrate and taking possession of their lands, in violation of the principles of international law and especially the Hague Convention of 1907 and the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949.

There is no need to highlight the danger which the pursuit of such a policy poses to international peace and security this policy unquestionably runs counter to international efforts for peace aimed at bringing about a just and comprehensive solution to the question of the Middle East, and militates against the prospects for peace in the region.

I should be grateful if you would have this letter and its annex circulated as a document of the General Assembly, under item 73 of the preliminary 1ist, and of the Security Council.
