Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has been continuing its multi-barrel artillery fire towards the Mavilaru area.

At least twenty artillery shells had been fired Sunday, sources in Serunuwara said.

Major General Nanda Mallawarachchi is camped in Kallaru since Friday.

Meanwhile, Venerable Elle Methananda Thera, leader of the all monks' party Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) said at a press briefing held in Colombo accused the government for delaying the military thrust on the LTTE to capture Mavilaru area.

He added that JHU parliamentary group leader Venerable Athureliya Ratana Thera would not leave from Kallaru to Colombo until the closed sluice gate of Mavilaru is re-opened.

Venerable Athureliya Rata Thera came to Kallaru on Thursday and has continued his agitation for a military operation to capture Mavilaru located in the LTTE controlled area, sources said
