Two Sri Lanka Air Force kfir fighter jets dropped eight bombs in two sorties Friday between 6:15 a.m. and 6:25 a.m. targeting a civilian settlement in Mu’rika'ndi located close to Ki’linochchi, seriously injuring a mother of three children and another civilian besides completely destroying a private boat building yard which makes boats for tsunami affected fishermen, sources in Ki'linochchi said. Five huts of tsunami victims and the house of Mu'rika'ndi Hindu Viththiyaalayam principal were damaged in the bombing.

The seriously injured mother S. Roobi, 32, had to have her leg amputated as it had been shattered.

She and the other civilian injured are being treated at Ki'linochchi general hospital.

Roobi was in her hut located next to the boat building yard when the bombers struck.

SLAF jets bombed the civilian settlements of tsunami affected families living in the area close to Mu'rika'ndi Pi'llaiyaar Koayil junction on A9 road around 350 m towards K’linochchi.

The boat building yard belongs to Mahenthiram, a private boat builder catering to tsunami affected fishermen. The workers employed in the yard are the tsunami affected civilians living in the settlement.

The workers in the boat yard narrowly escaped death as they had sought shelter in bunkers on hearing the kfir jets.

The window glasses in Mu'rika'ndi Hindu Viththiyaalayam and other shops in Mu’rukandi were smashed in the bombing.

Students of Mu'rika'ndi Viththiyaalayam are sitting for examinations now and only 32 of 126 students sitting for the examination had come to school because of the bombing, G. Soosainathan, principal of the school said.
