Tigers shell STF camp

[TamilNet, Monday, 28 December 1998, 09:46 GMT]
Three homeguards militiamen were wounded and one was killed when the Liberation Tigers fired mortars on the Special Task Force (STF) base at the Ampara Badulla road junction in the early of the hours of the morning today around 2 a.m.

The wounded militiamen were taken to the Ampara hospital.

The Liberation Tigers control the jungle region east of this camp which is located at the junction where the road from Ampara meets the road running west from Chenkalady, north of Batticaloa, to Mahiyangana and thence to Badulla, Kandy etc., in the hill country.

The STF camp is a few kilometers east of Maha Oya. The Police commandos have camp here as well.

Sources said that the STF withdraws from the camp at night and lies spread out in the area to prevent the Tigers from attacking the detachment.

The homeguard militia is deployed in the vicinity of the camp during the night.
