A resolution adopted by the United Nations Security Council on 15 July 1948 by a vote of 7 For, 1 Against (Syria), 3 Abstaining. Noting the failure of the UN-mediated truce in the 1948 War, the resolution expressed support for the efforts of UN mediator Folke Bernadotte, and called for continued efforts towards a peaceful settlement, with special focus on reaching a ceasefire in Jerusalem and demilitarizing the city.
