[TamilNet, Sunday, 12 August 2007, 17:10 GMT]
Residents of villages along the southern coastal of Jaffna report exchanges of gunfire between Liberation Tigers and Sri Lanka security forces intermittantly from Saturday night until Sunday morning, sources in Jaffna said. However, Sri Lanka military did not officially acknowledge that any incidents occured in the said area.

Ariyaalai East, Ariyaalai, Paasaiyoor, Kozhumpuththurai and Kurunakar villages remained tensed after the incidents along northern coastal waters of Jaffna lagoon.

During the fighting between the LTTE and the Sri Lanka security forces in 2000, the Sea Tigers used the same stretch of lagoon to land on the Jaffna peninsula to mount attacks on the Thenmaraadchi FDLs of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA).
