[TamilNet, Monday, 09 July 2007, 22:42 GMT]
Civilians living in the areas close to the Forward Defence Line of the Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE) controlled territory in Vavuniyaa were relocating to safer areaa out of fear from further attacks after Sri Lanka Army (SLA) launched sustained artillery barrage Sunday on LTTE controlled territories in Vavuniyaa, causing widespread damage to civilian properties.
SLA attacks originated from Pampaimadu, Kidaachchoori and Poovarasangku'lam camps.
SLA in Vauniyaa has been sporadically firing artillery on the LTTE areas beginning last week.
Meanwhile, SLA and the police continue to cordon off areas and conduct search operations jointly in SLA controlled Vavuniyaa town.
