[TamilNet, Wednesday, 14 February 2007, 12:40 GMT]
Ten Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers were injured when more than forty shells fired by Liberation Tigers hit the SLA camp located in Meesalai area along A9-high way between 11:30 am and 12:00 noon Wednesday, sources in Jaffna said. SLA command has not released official details of the attack and casualties.

Shells were also directed towards several key camps in Kodikamam Meesalai areas.

An elderly pedestrian C.Kulasekaram, 64, from Allarai North, Kodikamam was seriously injured and several civilians sustained minor injuries when a shell fell near the main road in Kodikamam during crowded market activity.

Kulasekaram was taken to Jaffna Teaching Hospital for treatment, hospital sources said.

Residents of Kodikamam, Meesalai and Chavakachcheri stayed indoors after the attack with the towns virtually deserted Wednesday afternoon, civil society sources in Thenmaradchy said.

The Meesalai SLA camp was previously used by the Liberation Tigers previous to 1995 exodus of Jaffna.
