Two Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers dropped more than ten bombs Wednesday around 9:10 a.m. on the civilian settlements in Manthuvil along Puthukkudiyiruppu - Mullaiththeevu road destroying eight houses. The bombers again dropped eight bombs on Keappapilavu civilian settlements along Puthukkudiyiruppu-Mu'l'liyawa'lai around 10:50 a.m destroying seven houses besides causing severe damage to paddy-fields. The attacks caused heavy damage to two roads.



The first air attack targeted Manthuvil civilian settlement located 5 km from Puththukkudiyiruppu which also caused damages to the extensively used Paranthan road in Puthukkudiyiruppu.

Many yielding palms and trees were damaged in the bombardment.

The road leading to Mu'l'liyava'lai from Puththukudiyiruppu suffered severe damages in the second aerial attack Wednesday.
