3 SLA troopers injured in Eluthumadduval, 1 killed in Vadamaradchy

[TamilNet, Saturday, 28 October 2006, 17:18 GMT]
Three Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers were injured in a claymore ambush on their military vehicle in a depopulated area between Nagarkovil and Eluthumadduval behind the Forward Defense Lines (FDL) Saturday morning, military sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, an SLA soldier was killed when unknown gunmen hurled a hand grenade at a sentry near Saraiyadi in Vadamaradchy along Point-Pedro - Jaffna road Saturday afternoon, sources said.

The three injured troopers were first taken to Palaly Military Hospital and later taken by helicopter to a Colombo medical facility, military sources in Jaffna added.

Assailants triggered the claymore mine near a location near Maruthadikulam where a high ranking officer of the SLA was killed and two SLA troopers were injured in a similar attack nearly three months earlier.
