SLA unloads ammunition consignments in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 13 March 2008, 11:23 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) vessels carrying large consignments of weapons to Sri Lanka Army (SLA) are reported being unloaded Tuesday and Wednesday in Kaangkeasanththu'rai (KKS) harobour, informed sources in Colombo said. Meanwhile, convoys of covered SLA heavy vehicles were seen going from KKS harobour to the Northern Front Defence Line (FDL) areas in Mukamaalai and Naakarkoayil in Vadamaraadchi east day and night on both days.

Meanwhile, reports from Jaffna said that the SLN authorities in KKS harobour have sent back Jaffna fishermen who work as port workers saying that weather conditions were unsuitable to unload goods from the ships that had brought merchandise from Colombo. Unloading civilian supplies from these ships had been suspended on Tuesday and Wednesday while all traffic along key roads in the peninsula were stopped several times enabling smooth passage to the SLA convoys.

SLA employs enormous quantity of shells in their daily attack on Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) positions and weapon consignments that are being taken to the Northern FDLS are to replenish their stock of artillery ammunition, the sources said.
