SLAF conducts air-raids over LTTE areas in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 19 September 2006, 16:27 GMT]
Sri Lankan Air Force (SLAF) Kfir fighters flew air sorties over areas near residential homes in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) controlled territory in the Batticaloa district on Tuesday around 7 a.m, S. Seelalan, deputy head of the Batticaloa LTTE political wing said. Though two bombs were dropped simultaneously on Tharavi in Eerakulam region no one was hurt, Seelalan said.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Army (SLA) also shelled areas close to Eeralakulam school where IDPS from Vadamunai, Oothuchenai and L.B villages were sheltered. The refugees fled the school in panic, said Seelalan.

Soldiers from the SLA camp at the Valaicheni Paper Mill also fired more than 50 artillery shells on the Koolavadi, Pendugalchenai, Kooraveli and Chenaikudirruppu villages in the LTTE controlled territory, destroying five residential homes, Seelalan further said.
