Tigers violate own 'ceasefire'
Tiger terrorists operating in Pooneryn area to the southwest of
Jaffna directed a string of artillery attacks on the Forward Defence
Lines (FDLs) of Muhamalai, Jaffna yesterday morning.
Ten artillery rounds fell on the FDL areas within a matter of few
minutes, causing huge blasts with huge palls of smoke that covered the
Alert troops reacted to the volume of heavy fire taking necessary
safety measures. Two soldiers sustained injuries in the fire.
Army troops videoed the explosion of LTTE artillery rounds, designed
to harm the Security Forces manning the FDLs.
The terrorists while declaring a so-called 'unilateral ceasefire' in
connection with the SAARC summit resort to practices that are fully
contrary to what they profess, defence sources said.
