Saudis and Gulf allies call for UN sanctions on Israel

After a three-day foreign ministers' parley here, Saudi Arabia and its five allies in the Gulf Cooperation Council called on the United States and the four other permanent members of the UN Security Council to apply economic sanctions on Israel for its invasion of Lebanon.

The Council denounced the United States for vetoing Security Council resolutions calling for Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon, but the statement contained no reference to a Tunisian call for an Arab summit in Tunisia this week to consider possible action to save Palestinian guerrillas trapped by Israeli forces in Beirut.
