SLA vacates Amban

[TamilNet, Monday, 27 March 2000, 07:28 GMT]
The SLA vacated its camp at Amban around noon today as the Liberation Tiger continued their assault on the garrisons in Maamunai and Thalaiyadi on Jaffna's southeastern coast. Residents fleeing the war zone said that the Tigers had blasted three culverts on the Pt.Pedro-Maruthankerni road at Kudarappu, Punnaiyadi and Maamunai.

They said that the Tigers have besieged the SLA camp at Maamunai and are attacking the Thalaiyadi camp. Large fighting units of the LTTE are operating from the hamlet of Nelliyan, less than a kilometer to the west of Thalaiyadi.

Sources in Vadamaradchi east said that the LTTE has attacked the forward defence lines of the Nagar Kovil SLA base, south of Pt.Pedro.

Meanwhile, military sources in Colombo denied any knowledge of the fighting on Jaffna's southeastern coast today but said that there were reports of fighting in the seas off Sembiyanpattu in the same sector.
