SLA moves weapons, explosives to Northern FDLs

[TamilNet, Friday, 28 March 2008, 17:44 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) transported heavy weapons and explosives in large quantities from Kaangkeasanththu’rai (KKS) harbour to its Northern Front Defence Line (FDL) areas in Ki’laali, Mukamaalai, Nakarkoayil and the islets of Jaffna, Thursday and Friday, sources from Jaffna said.

All vehicular traffic and public were kept waiting for many hours in empty areas 500 m from Jaffna-Palaali road and Jaffna-Point Pedro road as vehicles carrying the consignment of arms and ammunitions passed by.

The consignment of weapons and explosives were shipped to KKS harbour where it was unloaded Thursday and Friday.

People in Valvai area in Vadmaraadchi had to wait for more than four hours until night, ordered by SLA troops to keep away from the convoys carrying arms, sources in Vadamaraadchi said.

SLA avoids storing the weapons near Palaali SLA Military base and closeby areas for fear of aerial attacks by Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), the sources said.

SLA is also fortifying the Northern FDL positions with the aim of launching a large scale offensive on the LTTE held areas, they added.
