SLA shells A9 near Pu'liyangku'lam

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 31 July 2007, 00:06 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) stationed in Oamanthai heavily shelled Pu'liyangku'lam area along the A9 highway twice on Monday from 12:30 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. and then 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Local residents fled the area and sought safety in villages north of Pu'liyangku'lam, civil sources said.

The past few weeks, the SLA has been carrying out shell attacks targetting the Pu'liyangku'lam area where the LTTE's check point and customs office are located.

As a result, the traffic between Vanni and Vauniya has been disrupted.

Patients in Vanni who need urgent medical attention are unable to reach Vavuniya for further medical treatment, sources said.
