SLA cautions continuous curfew in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 25 September 2008, 06:59 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Jaffna cautioned Wednesday UN humanitarian organization and its other institutions functioning in Jaffna peninsula to maintain food stocks enough for three days in case a continuing curfew being imposed in the peninsula during eventual military measures on Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) on the Front Defence Line areas or on targets within the peninsula in the coming days, sources in Jaffna said. Residents in Jaffna say this could be a measure of the SLA to transport troops and weapons, unseen by the public, to the northern FDL areas.

The UN humanitarian organizations and other similar institutions in the peninsula had to undergo shortage of food and other necessities when curfews imposed suddenly continued for days in the past.

The SLA in Jaffna earlier warned the residents of the peninsula that a unit of Black Tigers has infiltrated into the peninsula and therefore a search for it continuing for at least three consecutive days could be launched.
