SLAF Kfir jets bomb Verugal

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 03 January 2007, 12:11 GMT]
Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) Kfir jets bombed Verugal areas in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) territory in Trincomalee district Wednesday around 10:00 a.m. SLAF claimed that identified LTTE targets were bombed. Casualty information was not released.

The offensive is part of a planned campaign by the Sri Lanka government (GoSL) to capture LTTE territory, Trincomalee sources said.

Meanwhile, four Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers were injured in a mortar attack launched by the Liberation Tigers on SLA sentry post located along the western boundary of Vaharai Tuesday around 6:00 p.m.

The injured troopers have been admitted to Polannaruwa Base hospital, hospital sources said.

SLA troops from their camps are continually launching rocket fire on Vaharai areas causing residents to live in fear and anxiety, Vaharai sources said.
