SLA fire damages Muttur east LTTE sentry point- Elilan

[TamilNet, Friday, 06 May 2005, 14:10 GMT]
Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Friday morning lodged a complaint with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in the east port town that the Sri Lanka Army soldiers located in Kaddaiparichchan camp had fired at the LTTE sentry in the LTTE controlled Muttur east. LTTE sentry point was damaged in the attack, Mr.Elilan said.

A team of SLMM monitors who visited the scene on receipt of the complaint is reported to have collected eight spent bullets found near the LTTE sentry point, Muttur sources said.

Mr.Elilan in his complaint said that on Thursday night around 8 p.m. soldiers in the Kaddaiparichchan SLA camp had advanced into the five hundred meter no man zone that divides the army and LTTE controlled areas in the Muttur division and fired at the LTTE sentry point about eighteen times.

Meanwhile, the SLA also made a complaint to the SLMM that its Kaddaiparichchan camp had been attacked by the LTTE Friday morning, sources said.

SLMM has commenced investigation into the two complaints.
