U.N. military actions during this period were limited to improving and consolidating front line positions, combat patrolling and artillery and air bombardments of enemy front line fortifications. Considerable U.N. attention was devoted to repulsing persistent enemy small-unit attacks all along the front

In general the front lines remained stable despite efforts by both sides to improve their positions.
