Two Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) kfir bombers dropped eight bombs in two sorties Friday between 12:15 a.m and 12:40 p.m on Visuvamadu junction, behind the shops in the area, in Puthukkudiyiruppu DS division of Mullaitheevu distirict, sources in Vanni said. A 65-year-old man identified as Nagappan and a child aged 3 years 3 months sustained injuries in the bombing while 5 students in a school located 800 meters from the bombed area fainted in shock of the exploding bombs.

Nagappan, 65
Nagappan is being treated at Puhtukkudiyiruppu hospital and the child, P. Kavipiriyan, with head injury, is admitted to Tharumapuram regional hospital.

The bombs fell and exploded 100 meters from Visuvamadu junction causing traders and people flee in panic from the shops.

420 students were at Punnai Neeravi Viththiyalam, the school where five students fainted in shock.

900 students were attending classes at Visuvamadu Maha Viththiyalayam located just one and a half km from the place bombed.

The students of both schools scattered in panic when the bombing began.

The bombs fell and exploded with deafening noise, 75 meters from the A35 road.

The students in both schools narrowly escaped death in the bombings and had the schools been hit in the indiscriminate bombing, a tragedy of the magnitude of school girls in Va'l'lipunam bombed to death by SLA kfirs, would have happened, residents in Puthukkudiyiruppu said.

Paranthan Hindu Mahavidyalam student, Mary Arulappan Juliet, 18, a survivor of the 2006 August 14 Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) Kfir jet attack which killed 51 girls and four staff at Sencholai children's home campus in Vallipunam in Mullaithivu district, in an interview to TamilNet, said the attack was a "cowardly act," and appealed to the International Community to unreservedly condemn the Sri Lanka Government for the attack on school girls.

SLAF reconnaissance aircrafts have increased their night missions above the Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE) controlled Vanni region.
