Large scale SLA cordon, search in Vadamaraadchi

[TamilNet, Friday, 11 July 2008, 15:43 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Jaffna peninsula launched large scale cordon and search operations Friday morning till evening in areas of Vadamaraadchi including Uduppiddi and Valveddiththu'rai, residents of Vadamaraadchi said. Vehicular traffic on main roads were blocked with SLA Buffel armoured personnel carriers and battle tanks from Palaali military complex, and the people were subjected to intensive search. The escalation of small scale attacks on SLA in the peninsula in recent times have triggered this intensified search, according to informed sources.

SLA soldiers manning check posts on the main roads detained for interrogation those who did not carry their National Identity Cards.

Similar large scale cordon and search operations had been launched earlier in Thenmaraadchi and in Karaveddi in Vadamraadchi simultaneously.

SLA has also stepped up cordon and search operations in Uduvil area in Valikaamam and areas in the islets of Jaffna.

Though normalcy in these areas was affected in the Friday search, information about anyone arrested was not available until Friday evening.
