Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers attacked a civilian settlement at Thearaavil in Visvuvamadu Friday between 1:50 p.m. and 2:10 p.m. Friday. A 35-year-old father of one child was wounded in the indiscriminate bombardment. The victim is an Internally Displaced Person from Kaaraitheevu (Kaarainakar) of Jaffna.

Two Kfir fighter jets bombed the settlement of IDPs, located near Thearaavil junction. Many of the settlers there had displaced recently from Puthumu'rippu, Ananthapuram, Oottuppulam in Ki'linochchi district and from various places of Mannaar district due to the SLA offensive on Vanni.
