Four SLAF Kfir bombers targeted a civilian settlement on the left side of Puthukudiyiruppu - Paranthan Road. 9 civilian houses were destroyed in the bombardment. A one-month-old baby miraculously escaped from the attack. A Kfir jet came down in Negombo when it took off to bomb Puthukudiyiruppu this evening.

Eleven women and 4 men were wounded in the SLAF bombing in retaliation to a bomb attack in Habarana in which around 100 Sri Lanka Navy troopers were killed.

Six civilians wounded in the attack were being treated at Puthukudiyiruppu hospital. Eight persons with serious injuries were admitted to Ponnambalam Hospital in Puthukudiyiruppu and one critically wounded was rushed to Kilinochchi hospital, medical sources added.

Meanwhile, LTTE Peace Secretariat officials in Kilinochchi said the truce monitors had visited and inspected the civilian site and the hospital where the wounded were being treated.

SLAF bombers have been heavily deployed in Sri Lankan attacks inside LTTE territory since April this year.

51 school girls and 4 staffers were killed in Vallipunam in Mullaithivu district on 14 August 2006.
