Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers that attacked Murasumoaddai on Paranthan Mullaiththeevu Road thrice, returned to bomb the next junction, Ka'ndaava'lai, while hundreds of civilians were fleeing the carnage at Murasumoaddai in the evening around 4:30 p.m., on Thursday. Two civilians, a 60-year-old mother and a 20-year-old male were injured in the attack on the densely populated junction. Three shops were fully destroyed and six shops damaged.

A factory run by Palmyrah Development Board is located close to the attack site. Ka'ndaava'lai Divisional Secretariat is located 450 meters near the junction towards the direction of Pu'liyampokka'nai.

The wounded were identified as Thangamma, 60, from Velikka'ndal and Sinnaththurai Nirmalatheepan, 20.

The bombers later attacked a locality between Vaddakkachchi and Ki'linochchi at 5:30 p.m. Casualty details of the fifth bombardment in Vanni on Thursday were not known.
