Three Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers and two policemen were injured in 3 different grenade attacks in Jaffna Wednesday night. Two Sri Lankan policemen were wounded when unidentified assailants lobbed a grenade into a police post in Navanthurai, a coastal suburb of the Jaffna town around 9:00 p.m. Wednesday. Two soldiers were wounded in Malusanthi junction near Nelliyadi in Vadamaradchi at 9:30 p.m. when unidentified assailants lobbed a grenade at an Army checkpoint.

The third incident was reported in Atchuveli, 15 km northeast of Jaffna town where two unidentified men riding in a motorbike on Valvetithurai-Atchuveli Road lobbed a grenade into an army post in Atchuveli town wounding a soldier.

Wounded policemen were admitted at Jaffna Hospital for treatment and the three SLA soldiers were rushed to Palaly Military Hospital, police said.

Meanwhile, tension prevailed in Gurunagar, another coastal suburb of Jaffna, from 7:00 a.m. as soldiers blocked civilian movement following grenade incident at an SLA checkpoint. A grenade lobbed at the checkpoint by unknown assailants did not explode.

School children, fishermen and public servants were affected by the traffic blockade and the extended delay in diffusing the unexploaded grenades.

Civilians close to the site were seen moving away from the area fearing army reprisals.
