SLA units launched a surprise attack on 24 bunkers ahead of the Nagarkovil, Muhamalai and Kilali FDL at around 2am today, completely destroying the bunkers. The majority of the Tigers manning the bunkers ran for their lives. The names of 15 Tigers killed were later confirmed. SLA sources indicated that around 30 others may have been injured in the attack. The Army lost two men.

The successes come after the Sri Lanka Army changed the timing of its attacks, from pre-scheduled strikes launched after Bodhipooja, based on auspicious times given by astrologers to totally random offensives launched at the will of the officers and men involved. This is causing confusion in LTTE strategy, which had, since 1983 been prepared to face only pre-scheduled operations.

Earlier, the Tigers were able to monitor the movement of men, machines and supplies and then prepare themselves for the strike, which was launched at a particular time on a particular day only. Now, offensives are launched sometimes daily, sometimes weekly, sometimes a couple of attacks a day at different intervals.

The Sri Lanka Army has also cleared the Pallaikuli area in North Mannar, thus facilitating a future attack to recapture Adampan Junction and Uylankulam. They are now only one kilometer from Adampan Junction. An unfortunately large number of child soldiers and women fighters deployed in difficult to man FDLs are being killed almost daily.

It has only been a week since several civilians in Thanamalvila village were brutally killed by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). The same guerilla attack team which exploded a cilivian transport killing 27 are suspected to be behind the attacks. The authorities are worried by the fact that this LTTE unit is still at large in the area. They are now forced hunt down the tiger team in the vast jungle terrain and to take precautionary measures against future attacks at the same time.

A large number of soldiers from the army’s Special Forces (SF) brigade, Police Special Task Force (STF) and the Civil Defense Force (CDF) have been deployed to Monaragala area following the attacks. According to our sources the total number of security forces deployed in this area now exceeds 4000. Meanwhile plans have been made to increase the manpower of the Nandimithra Brigade by 2000. Nandimithra Brigade is a part of the CDF which is trained under the direct supervision of SLA Special Forces and Commando regiment. The current manpower of this unit is below 500. Additionally, 1000 more regular CDF personnel too will be recruited from the border villages in Monaragala district.

Meanwhile in the northern front, soldiers from the army’s 55th division launched a pre emptive attack on LTTE bunker lines in Jaffna, today at around 2 AM in the morning. 4 LTTE bunkers in the Nagarkovil FDL along with another 20 bunkers surrounding A-9 main road in Muhamalai and Kilali regions were razed to the ground. Since there was no intention of holding on to the bunker lines, troops returned to original positions upon completion of the mission. This area (Nagarkovil/ Muhamalai/ Kilali) is referred to as the “National Front” (Jathika Peramuna) by the army due to its high significance in defense of the Jaffna peninsula.

On Mannar front, 58th division made further advances towards Adampan town center amidst LTTE resistance. Area surrounding the Adampan lake is now under SLA control. 58th division is steadily marching towards the major tiger stronghold of Viduthalaithiv which’s fall could seriously affect tigers in the Pooneryn sector.
