air attack on July 14—were due to arrive here Thursday. The delegation at the UN representing the
United States, Britain and France were expected to join the Security Council's debate only after Gen.
Bull's reports had been received and digested.
At Tuesday's session, the Security Council was addressed by representatives of Iraq and Jordan,
each of whom repeated all the usual Arab arguments against Israel.

its counter-complaint to the council.)
Meanwhile, the council heard bitter charges against what was termed "Israeli aggression" by
Ambassador George J. Tomeh, Syria's permanent representative here.
Tomeh was given the floor after a bitter two-hour battle aimed at keeping Israel's Ambassador
