Heavy SLA casualties feared in Jaffna ambush

[TamilNet, Friday, 09 February 2007, 04:10 GMT]
Several Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers have been feared killed in a claymore attack on a bus carrying SLA soldiers along Palaly Road, less than 50 meters from Urelu SLA camp at 10:30 p.m. during curfew hours Thursday night, sources in Jaffna said. The Palaly military command has not released official details on the attack.

The damaged bus, belonging to the Ceylon Transport Board (CTB), has been taken inside the Urelu camp, local residents said. However, large areas of blood stains and broken glasses are still visible near the scene of the attack, according to residents

The SLA has been moving large amount of ammunitions and soldiers towards Forward Defense Lines (FDLs) in Nagarkovil and Thenmaradchy under the cover of darkness during the past several days.

The Urelu camp is key SLA camp and serves as the main camp of the SLA Intelligence wing.
