Attacks against SLA in Jaffna continue

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 03 January 2007, 23:18 GMT]
Unidentified persons lobbed a hand grenade Tuesday around 7:30 p.m on the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) sentry post located near Arasady junction in Nallur, Jaffna, and in a separate incident Wednesday unidentified armed men opened fire on the SLA camp near Udupiddy junction in Vadamaradchi at 6:00 p.m, sources in Jaffna said. Information on SLA injuries are not available.

The hand grenade attack on the SLA troopers at Arasady junction was followed by indiscriminate gunfire from the SLA camps in Nallur, Kalviyankadu and Thirunelvely but no one was injured in the fire, the sources said.

The SLA, following attack on Udupiddy junction camp, began reinforcing security around camps located at Navindil, Thikkam, northern coast of Vadamaradchi, Alvai and Vallai.

The roads in front of these camps were closed for public and all vehicles and persons using the roads were forced to use vacant tracts of land nearby, causing severe hardships to civilians.

The residents along these roads were directed by the SLA to keep their main gates and entrances always open and to remove fences and other obstructions, allowing free movement for its troopers, sources in Point Pedro said.
