SLAF jets bomb Trinco villages

[TamilNet, Monday, 22 January 2001, 15:35 GMT]
Sri Lanka Air Force jets bombed four villages about 8 km. south of Trincomalee around 5.30 p.m. Monday. Local residents said two Kfir jets attacked the villages of Chenaiyoor, Kaddaiparichchan, Samboor and Soodaikuda. Initial reports indicated extensive damage. But details of casualties and destruction of property are not available sources in Mutur, the town closest to the targets of Monday's air raid, said.

Chenaiyoor, Kaddaiparichchan and Samboor are large densely populated villages in which the greater concentration of Tamils in the southern parts of the Trincomalee district live.

The Sri Lanka Air Force stepped up bombing raids on the Vanni this weekend.

Meanwhile, aid agency sources from the Vanni said that two fishermen have been reported missing and another seriously wounded when the Sri Lanka Navy had fired on fishing boats in seas off the Mullaithivu coast in the early hours of Sunday morning.
