SLA clears verges over ambush fears

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 04 November 1997, 23:59 GMT]
The Sri Lankan army has asked residents in Kokkuvil and Kalviankaadu to cut down trees along the road side and inside lanes. The people in these areas have also been ordered not to thatch the lower side of their fences by the lanes and roads.

This follows the detection of four Improvised Explosive Devises attached to and hidden in trees by the side of some lanes and roads in Kokkuvil and Kalviankaadu frequented by the army.

The military intelligence in Jaffna has informed Sri Lankan troops that an LTTE unit in these areas is preparing to launch a series of small scale ambushes using the IEDs in the smaller lanes which are sometimes used by the army's foot patrols.

The Sri Lankan army has asked residents in certain parts of Valigamam and Vadamaradchi also to do the same.
