Tigers train guns beyond harbour

[TamilNet, Sunday, 21 May 2000, 18:06 GMT]
Artillery shells fired by the Liberation Tigers hit coastal areas to the west of Kankesanthurai (KKS), Sri Lanka army's only harbour in Jaffna, yesterday sources contacted by phone in the northern peninsula said Sunday. The shelling indicates that the LTTE has moved its field guns closer to the sprawling military base complex in Palaly and Kankesanthurai the sources said.

Shells fired by the Tigers fell in Senthaankulam, Munnaan, Ilavalai and Mathagal Saturday, threatening SLA positions on Jaffna's northern and northwestern coast.

The Tigers said Sunday that they are pressing on with assaults on the remaining SLA camps in the Thenmaradchi division. They said that 13 kilometers of the A9 highway from Ariyalali to Chavakachcheri is now under their control and that only six kilometers of the road is currently held by the SLA between Meesalai and Eluthumadduval.

Meanwhile the Voice of Tigers said in its night news broadcast today that a woman, Kandasamy Poomanithevi, and her two children, Prabhalini (lucky) and Surendiran, were killed in SLA shelling yesterday in Madduvil south.
