SLA, LTTE exchange mortar fire near Muhamalai FDL

[TamilNet, Sunday, 04 February 2007, 17:54 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers and the Liberation Tigers exchanged artillery and mortar fire near Thenmaradchy Forward Defence Lines (FDLs) near Muhamalai from Sunday morning, residents living close to the area in Mirusuvil and in Usan said. Two shells fell within the SLA camp at Usan located behind the Forward Defence Line (FDL) positions, residents said. A shell fired by the Liberation Tigers exploded in areas close to Usan and Mirusuvil Camps of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Sunday, causing minor injuries to two civilians, sources close to SLA said

Though residents close to the SLA camps in Usan and Mirusuvil had moved out of their residences in these areas when clashes erupted between the SLA and the LTTE on August 11 last year, some of the people had returned to their houses.

Until Sunday night no one had been treated for injuries, or admitted to either the Chavakacheri hospital or Jaffna hospital, hospital sources said.
