One killed, three wounded in Polannaruwa attack

[TamilNet, Thursday, 10 May 2001, 06:37 GMT]
A Sri Lanka army soldier was killed and two were wounded in an attack by the Liberation Tigers in Sungawil in the Polannaruwa district Thursday morning around 7.30 a.m. The Tigers hit an army post near the district border between Polannaruwa and Batticaloa. A security assistant at the checkpoint was also wounded in the attack. Sungawil is 21 kilometres northeast of the Polannaruwa town.

The Liberation Tigers control the large northern part of the Batticaloa district, which is contiguous with the eastern side of the Polannaruwa district where Sungawil is located.

The SLA send deep penetration groups into the Batticaloa district's northern hinterland from its camps in Polannaruwa east to intercept and ambush LTTE patrols from the organisation's large bases in the interior.

The SLA patrols arrest civilians from Vakarai, 64 kilometres north of Baticaloa who go to collect wild honey in the jungles of the hinterland.
