LTTE activity in Jaffna Town

[TamilNet, Friday, 29 May 1998, 23:59 GMT]
SLA sources in Jaffna said yesterday that the army in Jaffna Town discovered that more than forty landmines, a pistol and some army uniforms have been removed from a house used by troops to store materiale in Koddady, Northeast of the town centre.

They said they believe Tigers had infiltrated the SLA's high security zone in the area and made off with the goods despite the sentry points which surround the area.

In another incident in the Jaffna town a SLA soldier was shot dead on Tuesday, when he entered an unoccupied house, by a suspected member of the Liberation Tigers.

The Army launched a search operation in the town following the incident. However no arrests were made, said sources.

At 5.30 a.m. yesterday the SLA launched a search operation in the villages of Kopay, Neervely and Atchelu north of Jaffna town, said sources. SLA personnel searched houses in the villages and made a list of the names of the households.

It is not known whether any arrests were made.
