Two SLA soldiers killed in Manalaru - LTTE

[TamilNet, Monday, 19 June 2006, 06:14 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam said two Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers were killed and their bodies captured by the Tigers when a group of SLA troopers launched an attack on the Forward Defence Line (FDL) of the Tigers in the remote jungles of Manalaru, south of Mullaithivu, on Sunday.

Two T-56 automatic rifles, four grenades, ten magazines and three magazine holsters were captured by the Tigers, according to the press note issued by the media unit of the LTTE.

The dead bodies of the SLA soldiers would be handed over to the ICRC, the Tigers said.

Manalaru is located in Mullaithivu district.

Thousands of Tamil residents were forcibly driven out of eighteen traditional villages in Manalaaru and from the large old village of Thennamaravaadi in Trincomalee district, almost overnight by the Sri Lankan army in 1984.

Sri Lanka Army established a network of Sinhala settlements and renamed Manalaru in Sinhala as Weli Oya.
