Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers dropped at least 20 bombs in four sorties on Chu'ndikku'lam and the coastal areas on Thursday. Two SLAF bombers dropped 10 bombs at 7:10 a.m., and the bombers returned again two hours later at 9:00 a.m. targeting the same area. Kallaa'ru in the same region was attacked at 11:00 a.m. The bombers returned for the fourth time around 3:00 p.m. to target the same area.

The SLAF has stepped up attacks in Vadamaraadchi East as artillery guns of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) targeted densely populated Tharmapuram Junction, the civilian centre of Vanni in the Ki'linochchi district.

Around 40 bombs have been dropped in Chu'ndikku'lam area.
