Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser appoints General Hassan Abdel Latif as military governor of the Gaza Strip, even though the United Nations at the time had administrative control over the area.

This move alarms Israel and other nations who fear that Nasser has plans to move military units into the area, but Nasser assures them that had no such intentions.
