The move comes after SLA shells have begun targeting Ki'ilnochchi and the A9 Road.
Meanwhile, sources in LTTE controlled areas also said there were no NGO vehicles that arrived in Ki'linochchi on Friday. NGO vehicles passed through LTTE checkpost towards Vavuniyaa as usual, the sources further said.
