Tigers train guns on Valikamam SLA

[TamilNet, Saturday, 30 September 2000, 18:39 GMT]
Long range artillery fired by the Liberation Tigers fell in the Sri Lanka army's high security zone in the general area of Punnaalaikadduvan, 13 kilometers northof Jaffna town. SLA sources said that there was no damage but added that the ability of the Tigers to reach so far inside the Valikamam division has caused some concern because Punnailaikadduvan is near Palaly and the main base of the 51 division.

The Tigers have also stepped up artillery attacks on the army's new 're-adjusted' defence lines in Kilali and Eluthumadduval Saturday evening SLA sources in Jaffna said.

Meanwhile, a civilian, Sinnathurai Suthaharan, 25, of Hospital road in Atchuvely was wounded seriously in a rocket explosion Saturday night around 7.30 p.m. He was admitted to the Jaffna Teaching Hospital.

Suthaharan told doctors that he was hit by shrapnel of a rocket fired by from a Multi-Barrel Rocket Launcher.
