Civilians to resettle Tiger held areas

[TamilNet, Thursday, 30 December 1999, 13:28 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers are making arrangements to resettle displaced civilians in the areas newly captured by them during their military operation "Unceasing waves-3" said reports from the Vanni.

A large number of civilians are to be resettled in Mankulam, Olumadu, Karupaddamurippu areas, captured by the Tigers during the early phase of the operation, sources said.

Arrangements are also being made to resettle villagers displaced from Murasumoddai, Uriyan and surrounding hamlets, east of Paranthan in the Kilinochchi District, the sources added.

Sources said a meeting was held on 28 December, at Nudenkerny in the Vanni, to discuss the resettlement program with the civilians. People are reported to have expressed their willingness to move back to their homes, from where they fled during the SLA's 'Operation Jeyasikurui', the sources said.

Reports said resettlement of hundreds of civilians in these areas will begin by Thai Pongal, on January 15.
