receipt of UNTSO reports, and has

ance to the Mixed Armistice
Commission against Syria, Gen.
Bull stated that, between the
scene of the fatal incident, near
the Israeli village of Shaar Ha-
golan, just south of the demar-
cation line between Syria and
Israel, and a hard-surfaced road
215 yards away, "a trail of foot-
prints was found." He said these
footprints "were alleged by an
Israeli tracker to have been
made by a party of three per-
sons" and that other prints near-
by "were well-defined." The
UN observers at this site, he
said, had interviewed five Is-
raeli witnesses.
The earlier incident referred to
in Gen. Bull's report had occurred
in the Romema district of Jeru-
salem, where three explosive
charges went off under two apart-
ment houses, wounding three per-
sons, while a fourth explosive had
been found and defused by Israeli
In this case, Gen. Bull said, the
site was near the Jordanian bor-
der. Here, he stated. United Na-
tions military observers, aided by
Israelis, investigated the blasts
and later continued the probe on
the Jordanian side of the frontier.

except Bulgaria, a staunch mem-

of Israel's action in bringing its

United Nations, instead of taking
unilateral action in reprisal

to both Syria and Israel to refrain

The prime minister cited the
"unremitting" Arab rearmament,
and said that Israel had no choice
but to maintain military readiness
and to bolster its deterrent power.
He added Israel would "continue

Fedorenko replied to Comay

Israel that he had employed in
the council since it opened its cur-

that both Eban and Comay were
"pompous" in their statements,
