[TamilNet, Wednesday, 13 April 2005, 15:13 GMT]
Responding to Sri Lanka Army (SLA) statement that pieces of artillery shells fired by LTTE fell on the army controlled area where Thoppur army camp is located, Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) said Wednesday, "LTTE cadres conducted normal military training in our controlled area in the Muttur east in the Trincomalee district on Tuesday morning," sources said.

Mr.Elilan added, "as part of regular exercise LTTE cadres conducted their mortar training in a place, which is inside the LTTE controlled area. Pieces of shells fell within our controlled area and not elsewhere as stated by Sri Lanka Military spokesman.

"We have explained our position to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) officials when they inquired from us about the complaint lodged with them by the SLA regarding this incident."
