Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) Kfir jets were observed over remote suburbs of Vanni in high altitude around 2:25 p.m. Monday. Civilian sources reported hearing sounds of explosion. Liberation Tigers had earlier warned Colombo that they would be forced to retaliate if SLAF bombers continued to bomb Vanni.
Details of SLAF bombing is yet to emerge.
A Sri Lankan reconnaisance plane was also observed Monday morning in Vanni, sources said.
Sources in Vanni said the munitions dropped by SLAF are of the unguided variety and have fortunately not caused civilian casualties during the recent bombing campaign by Colombo.
