SL soldiers clash, killing 3 among them inside camp in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 09 March 2012, 06:15 GMT]
A clash among the occupying soldiers at a major Sri Lanka Army (SLA) camp in the Jaffna peninsula has taken the lives of at least 3 and has injured many on Friday morning, news sources in Jaffna said. The SLA camp is located along the A9 Highway, at Nu'naavil, 5 km south of Chaavakachcheari town. In a territory where the occupying soldiers in the camps often exceed the number of local people, such clashes within the SLA are common, sporadically ending with killings, the sources further said.

The people around the Nu'naavil camp heard heavy exchange of gunfire on Friday morning.

2 soldiers died inside the camp and one succumbed to his injuries while being taken to the hospital.

Ambulances were running to and fro indicating the gravity of the clash and the number of injured soldiers.

SL military officials in Colombo have admitted the death of 3 soldiers without noting the cause of the death.

The Nu'naavil camp was notorious for abductions and killings of Tamils in the past.
