Lake Success (AP) -- The Jewish Agency appealed last night to the UN Security Council to act quickly and stop the reported invasion of Palestine by Arab forces.
Moshe Shertok, chief of the agency's political department, said that unless the Security Council intervened, large-scale warfare was inevitable. This, he said, would lead to a "major conflagration with incalculable consequences."
Shertok's telegrams was sent to Alexandre Parodi of France, President of the Security Council. It recounted reports from Palestine of Arab forces crossing the border and said:
"Jewish defense forces (are) determined (to) resist this new phase (of) invasion at all costs."
"We appeal to you as president," Shertok concluded." to promote appropriate action with greatest urgency."
Earlier the Jewish Agency lambasted anew proposals for a trusteeship in the Holy Land.
