SLAF kfirs drop eight bombs on civilian settlements in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 12 December 2006, 09:12 GMT]
Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) kfir jets dropped eight bombs in four sorties Tuesday around 10:00 a.m on the civilian villages of Kattumrivu, Kathiraveli and Palchenai in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) held territory in Batticaloa district, sources in Batticaloa said. No casualties were reported though four houses of civilians were badly damaged.

Civilians in Kathiraveli, Palchenai, Vammivettuvan and Kandalady fleeing from artillery and Multi-Barrel Rocket fire from Sri Lanka Army (SLA) positions in the last three days had sought refuge in Vaharai hospital. If not for this evacuation from the bombed areas, many lives would have been lost, Vaharai hospital sources said.

Meanwhile, from Tuesday morning, intermittent shelling from Kallaru in Trincomalee, and Kadjuwathe, Punanai, Mankerny in Batticaloa and Singapuram in Polanaruwa SLA bases are being made on LTTE held areas.

The shells, falling and exploding near Vaharai Hospital, pose great danger to the lives of the people who have sought shelter there.
