LTTE, SLA exchange artillery fire in Vadamaraadchi

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 04 March 2008, 17:05 GMT]
Heavy artillery and Multi-barrel rocket launcher fire duel between Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) broke out Tuesday around 7:30 p.m in areas close to the Front Defence Line (FDL) positions in Nakarkoayil in Vadamaraadchi east and lasted until 9:30 p.m.

Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) on the coasts of Vadamaraadchi east had fired volleys on seeing some boats in the seas and this had triggered the SLA attack on LTTE positions.

SLA troops posted in the other artillery bases in Jaffna peninsula launched their attacks in unison creating tension among the peninsula residents.

The tension eased down in the night when the artillery duel ended around 9:30 p.m.

Information on this clash has not been released yet.
