    SOF:"MR. PRESIDENT, I WISH TO DRAW THE COUNCIL'S ATTENTION TO THE GRAVE NEWS THAT FIGHTING HAS ERUPTED ON ISRAEL'S FRONTIERS & THAT THE ISRAEL DEFENCE FORCES ARE NOW REPELLING EGYPTIAN ARMY & AIR FORCE. I HAVE SO FAR RECEIVED ONLY A FIRST REPORT ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT. FROM THIS IT IS EVIDENT THAT IN THE EARLY HOURS OF THIS MORNING, EGYPTIAN ARMED COLUMNS MOVED IN AN OFFENSIVE THRUST AGAINST ISRAEL'S BORDERS. AT THE SAME TIME, EGYPTIAN PLANES PUT OFF FROM AIRFIELDS IN SINAI & STRUCK OUT TOWARDS ISRAEL. ISRAELI FORCES ENGAGED THE EGYPTIAN IN THE AIR & ON LAND & FIGHTING IS STILL GOING ON. MR. PRESIDENT, THIS IS A SITUATION OF UTMOST GRAVITY. EGYPTIAN FORCES MET WITH AN IMMEDIATE RESPONSE FROM THE ISRAELI FORCES ACTING IN SELF DEFENCE. IN ACCORDANCE WITH ARTICLE 51 OF THE CHARTER, I BRING THIS DEVELOPMENT TO THE IMMEDIATE ATTENTION OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL. WE ARE A SMALL BUT BRAVE PEOPLE; WE WANT PEACE GUT WE ARE READY TO FIGHT FOR OUR LAND & OUR RIGHTS."
