SLA builds new camp in Navatkuli

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 23 May 2006, 11:15 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) is building a new camp in Navatkuli Jaffna as part of a wider effort of expanding SLA positions in the Thenmaradchi sector of the Jaffna peninsula, sources from Jaffna said. About 300 troops from the 52-1 Brigade are putting up fences and building sentries between Navatkuli junction and Navatkuli bridge, civilian sources said.

Civil society sources said that the establishment of new camp will likely impede the flow of traffic on the A-9 high way.

Meanwhile, a firefight was reported at Sonappu in Karaveddi, around 6:00 p.m., Monday. Attackers fired at a SLA sentry post from behind a shrub jungle, and troops retaliated, sources said.

It is not known if there were any casualties.

Earlier on Monday at Sandilipai SLA troopers on a road patrol retaliated when unidentified armed men fired at them, sources said.
