UN Security Council Resolutions: Resolution 53

(July 7, 1948)

To enable him to continue his task of bringing about peace, Count Bernadotte appealed to the parties to prolong the truce. The Security Council echoed this appeal with its own Resolution of 7 July 1948. Israel accepted it. The Arab States rejected it, and on 9 July renewed the fighting.

The Security Council,

Taking into consideration the telegram from the United Nations Mediator dated 5 July 1948,

Addresses an urgent appeal to the interested parties to accept in principle the prolongation of the truce for such period as may be decided upon in consultation with the Mediator.
