STF fires artillery shells on homes in Amparai

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 11 July 2006, 17:07 GMT]
Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Amparai political heads, registered complaints with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), that the Special Task Forces (STF) troopers based at Kanchirankuda STF camp, have Tuesday fired barrages of 81 mm artillery shells on residential areas of Kanchikudichaaru in LTTE controlled Amparai District, sources said.

Residents are fleeing the area to safety elsewhere, sources added.

LTTE political head for Amparai district Mathurakavy, and the LTTE political head for Udumpan Kulam division Veeramany, today held an urgent meeting with the members of Amparai SLMM.

The LTTE delegation complained to SLMM members that at least 23 shells have been fired by the STF on residential areas, on Tuesday.

Last month too the STF launched artillery attacks on homes in the area and residents are living in constant fear and misery, the LTTE delegation told SLMM.

SLMM members visited the affected areas from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m.

Kanchikudichaaru is located 76 km south of Batticaloa town.
