Attack on SLA, after thorough search operation in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Saturday, 28 June 2008, 01:47 GMT]
A Sri Lanka Army soldier was killed and another seriously injured following an ambush carried out on SLA soldiers returning to Manthikai base in Vadamaraadchi, Jaffna, after completing a day-long search operation in Thunnaalai area Friday night. The SLA has launched another cordon and search operation Saturday morning, blocking civilian movement in Thunnaalai and Nelliyadi areas, residents there said. Thunnaalai has been subjected to record high search operations in the Jaffna peninsula so far this year.

The SLA is yet to release details on the attack.

The ambush, either a Claymore mine or a hand grenade attack, has seriously wounded two SLA soldiers at 8:30 p.m. Friday at Kuyavar piddi in Thunnaalai. One of them succumbed to his injuries at Manthikai hospital while the other was transferred in serious state to Palaali military hospital.

Meanwhile, the SLA has blocked civlian movement to and from Thunnaalai and Nelliyadi as it launched a fresh cordon and search operation. Cyclists, including the students who were on their way to private tuition centres, have been blocked along the sides of the roads.
