Three SLA soldiers injured in Jaffna grenade attack

[TamilNet, Saturday, 13 May 2006, 16:20 GMT]
Three Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers were seriously wounded when unknown assailants threw hand grenades at the SLA foot patrol near the Post Office Junction along Jaffna-Palaly Road at 7.30 p.m., Saturday, sources from Jaffna said.

Assailants had approached the Post Office junction through the road that runs behind the Jaffna Campus and escaped after hurling the grenades at the SLA troopers.

Soldiers indiscriminately fired after the incident, seriously injuring an elderly civilian, N. Sadacharam, 59, who was passing by along the Palaly Road.

He has been admitted to the Jaffna Teaching Hospital, medical sources said.

Resurging Tamileelam Students Brigade in a memorandum sent to the Jaffna local media outlets claimed responsibility for the attack. "We have been fighting a war of non-violence against the SLA occupation of Jaffna. After the deliberate fire to our Students' buildings and destruction of the property, we can no longer remain silent. The attack on the SLA stationed near the Post Office Junction is carried out by our cadres," the memorandum said.
