SLA cordoned off Neervely

[TamilNet, Saturday, 29 November 1997, 23:59 GMT]
The SLA cordoned off and searched Neervely in Jaffna yesterday. The operation began around 5 a.m. early morning.

The army searched the area until noon 12 a.m.

The Neervely operation came in the wake of the confrontation between the SLA and the Liberation Tiger on Thursday Nov. 27 night.

The fighting was near the LTTE's large war dead memorials (Thuyilum Illam) in Kopay. The LTTE lit lamps here on the night of the Maveerar day.

Sources were unable to confirm the number of civilians who had been taken into custody during the cordon and search operation.
