SLA curfew on Thenmaradchi extended indefinitely
[TamilNet, Friday, 29 December 2006, 09:48 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) announced the official extension of curfew on Thenmaradchi in Jaffna peninsula with effect from 9:00 p.m Thursday until further notice without citing any reason, over its radio at the Palaly Army Head Quarters Thursday night. The curfew hours imposed on the rest of the Jaffna peninsula are extended by two hours from 8:00 p.m to 5:00 a.m, according to the SLA announcement, Jaffna sources said.
Though no visible signs are seen of the SLA making any significant movement of troops or vehicles, the sudden extension of curfew on Thenmaradchi until further notice, raises suspicion of some major action about to take place on the southern Front Defence Lines (FDL), residents in Jaffna said.
