The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Batticaloa launched Multi Barrel Rocket Launcher (MBRL) fire from their camps towards Liberation Tigers Tamil Eelam (LTTE) held territories in Baticaloa district, Wednesday from 6:00 a.m til 10:30 a.m, sources in Batticaloa said. Government offices and schools were closed.

SLA launched MBRL fire from 233rd Brigade in Batticaloa, Sathurukondan, Mylambaveli, Kommanthurai, Murakottanchenai, Kumburumoolai and Valaichenai brigade camps.

The casualty figures and damages in LTTE held areas are not available at the moment.

More than 80% of residents in LTTE areas have already been displaced by the unrelenting artillery and mortar fire launched by the SLA. Their properties too have been badly damaged by the shelling.
