LTTE repulses SLA attack in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Sunday, 24 December 2006, 11:43 GMT]
Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) combatants successfully repulsed Saturday around 8:30 p.m an attack by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and its collaborating paramilitary group from Black Bridge SLA camp at Chenkalady in Batticaloa on the LTTE held Karadiyanaru area, LTTE Batticaloa district political wing sources said. Three SLA troopers were seriously injured while no one was injured on their side, the sources added.

The clash took place near the LTTE Front Defence Line (FDL) positions in Koduvamadu into which the SLA tried to penetrate.

Meanwhile, two houses, home gardens and paddies belonging to residents in Karadiyanaru area were damaged in the mortar firing launched by the Chenkalady SLA camp Saturday. None of the inhabitants was hurt, though four goats were killed.

Karadiyanaru is located 18 km northwest of Batticaloa town.
