Hindu Temple, 13 houses damaged in SLAF bombing

[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 October 2006, 17:55 GMT]
A Pillayar temple, a Multi-Purpose Co-operative Society building and 13 houses were badly damaged Thursday morning around 11:00 when SLAF kfir attack aircrafts bombed civilian settlements in Tharavai and Iralakulam in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eeelam (LTTE) controlled area in Batticaloa district.

Since residents have sought safety in the jungles and other places when the bombings started this Wednesday, there were no injuries to civilians.

However, a large number of livestock including goats and cattle were injured or killed in the bombing.

Four bombing raids have been conducted by the SLAF in the LTTE controlled areas since Wednesday.

Tharavai is situated north west of Batticaloa town.
