SLA sentry in Kaakaithivu attacked, no one injured

[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 June 2006, 14:18 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) sentry points located near Kaakai thivu junction in Aanaikottai area inside the Jaffna Municipal perimeter came under gunfire from the nearby housing development at 1:30 p.m. Saturday sources in Jaffna said. SLA soldiers returned fire but no one was injured in the firefight. The gunmen used a house vacated by a family who moved to Vanni to mount the attack and escaped, according to sources.

SLA soldiers cordoned off and searched Aanaikottai area, Kanagampuliyady and KKS road, but no arrests were made, according to local residents.

The firefight occurs following a three day lull in violence in Jaffna.

The peninsula is slowly returning to normalcy and residents have started moving out freely after months of violence including several incidents of extra-judicial killings by the Sri Lanka armed forces and collaborating paramilitaries, residents said.
