Two SLA soldiers killed in Welikanda

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 02 May 2000, 13:06 GMT]
Two soldiers were killed and a military trained Policeman was wounded when the Liberation Tigers shelled Sri Lanka Army (SLA) positions in Welikanda, about 62 kilometers northwest of Batticaloa, this morning around 7 a.m. The Tigers had fired long range mortars from the region under their control east of Welikanda, hitting two border security posts of the SLA.

The Tigers had fired eight shells on SLA posts in Bowatte and Monarathanna, two Sinhala hamlets near the Batticaloa district border between 6.30 a.m. and 7 a.m today.

The two villages are in the general area of Welikanda which is a minor Sinhala town in the Polonnaruwa district close to the border of the Batticaloa district.

SLA sources in Welikanda said that the Tigers appear to have fired 81 m.m mortars from the Vaakarai region which is under their control.
