Elilan: SLA offensive repulsed in Panichchankerni

[TamilNet, Sunday, 10 December 2006, 13:33 GMT]
A Sri Lanka Army offensive south of Vaharai along the costal line towards Panichchankerni was defeated by the defence forces of the Tigers, said S. Elilan, Trincomalee Political Head of the Tigers. 19 civilians were killed in SLA and Sri Lanka Navy shelling and 50 civilians were wounded Sunday.

""Around 27 IDPs were critically wounded. ICRC was ready to offer transportation to wounded civilians from Vaharai hospital. But the Sri Lankan military did not allow them to transport the wounded."

"An attempt by SLMM to facilitate transportation also failed today. A patient died."

Today, a group of civilians on their own initiative, transported a few wounded on boats towards Batticaloa, amid shell attacks, risking their lives, Mr. Elilan further said.
