Resentment between SL forces and Tamils escalates in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Saturday, 13 June 2020, 19:20 GMT]
Frustration and resentment against the occupying SL military and the SL police are escalating in Jaffna peninsula as witnessed in various incidents in recent times. On Tuesday, a group of Tamil residents in Analai-theevu islet assaulted SL Navy officers, who were threatening their fellow residents receiving treatment at the local hospital after being attacked by SL Navy personnel in an earlier clash. The SL Navy imposed a travel blockade for two days and harassed the people. The dispute was reported after SL Navy men started to roam around the residential areas with suspicious intent, Tamil families in the islet said.

A similar incident was also reported at Kaangkeasan-thu'rai (KKS) in recent times.

The SL military personnel are deployed in residential areas in the islets and the peninsula. The deployment was recently stepped up citing measures to control the spread of COVID-19 infections.

The SL soldiers and policemen roaming around the residential areas come into conflict with families that want to protect the women and children.

On Saturday, SL Army and STF commandos rounded up a locality in Thunnaalai in Karaveddi in Vadamaraadchi between 5 and 8 pm.

The cordon and search operation came after the SL intelligence operatives traced the cell phones of persons who had travelled across a locality where an explosion had taken place recently.
