An elite commando unit of the Special Task Force personnel who penetrated into Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam controlled territory at 39th Colony in Vellavely, 3 km north of Batticaloa Amparai district border, were repulsed in a counter-attack by the Tigers Tuesday evening. The STF commandos, during their retreat, left behind a dead body of a paramilitary cadre with his arms and ammunition, said S. Seeralan, LTTE's Batticaloa district deputy political head.

The counter-attack on the penetrating STF commando unit was carried out around 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.

The dead body of a paramilitary member, his weapon and ammunition rounds were recovered by the Tigers.

The Tigers had made arrangements to hand over the dead body, Mr. Seeralan said.

The STF commandos had launched the operation from Mandoor STF camp through Kakkachchiveddai.
