LTTE released the photograph of the Claymore mine left behind by the Deep Penetration team in Mahilankulam.
The SLA incursion into LTTE territory is another incident in the continued violation of the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) by the Sri Lankan Military, the LTTE media coordinator said.

Article 1.2 of the February 2002 CFA Agreement requires cessation of all military action and including the firing of direct and indirect weapons, armed raids, ambushes, assassinations, abductions, destruction of civilian or military property, sabotage, suicide missions and activities by deep penetration units. The article also requires complete cessation of offensive naval and aerial operations.
