SLN increases troop strength in Veala'nai

[TamilNet, Monday, 29 October 2007, 11:17 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) command has been transporting additional soldiers to the SLN camp in Veala'nai in the islets of Jaffna for the past three days, sources in Jaffna said. Soldiers are arriving in SLN ships from Mannaar to Kayts, and also from Colombo to Palaali by air and transported by road to Veala'nai, according to sources.

Security has also been strengthened along the main road to Veala'nai from Jaffna town, and vehicular and pedestrian travel along the road have been restricted, to facilitate troop movement.

Tension prevails in islets as residents speculate that SLN may be planning for an offensive towards Pooneryn.

Islet residents also inform they have observed increasing air surveillance over the area during the past three days.
