SLN boat destroyed in commando raid - Radio

[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 February 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The Voice of Tigers (VoT) said this evening that the Sea wing of the Leopards special unit of the Liberation Tigers had destroyed a Water Jet and killed five soldiers in a commando raid on the SLN's jetty at Kilaly, in Jaffna late last night around 11.50 p.m.

The radio said that the Leopards had also burnt supply depot in the SLN base and damaged two Out Board Mootor fitted speed boats.

Two more water jets which are engaged in patrolling the Jaffna lagoon had withdrawn west to the Elephant Pass base according to the VoT.

The jetty at Kilaly is under the command of the Special Boat Squadron (SBS), the elite special forces wing of the Sri Lanka SLN, modelled after the US Navy SEALS. The SBS was raised after the PA government came to power.
