A Sri Lanka Army Forward Defence post located between the SLA controlled Tha'l'laadi and the Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE) controlled territory in Mannaar was attacked by the Tigers Wednesday early morning around 2:30, Tiger officials told media in Ki'linochchi. Five SLA troopers were killed in the pre-dawn attack, they claimed and said the FDL post, located 500 meters away from the Tha'l'laadi SLA base, was destroyed in the attack. The Tigers seized a Light machine gun, two automatic rifles and a communication equipment in the pre-dawn raid.

A PK-LMG, two T-56 type-2 automatic rifles and a communication equipment were captured, LTTE field officials told media.

SLA soldiers operating from the FDL post were attempting to infiltrate the LTTE territory, LTTE officials said.

There were no LTTE casualties.

Tha'l'laadi SLA base is located 17 km southwest of LTTE controlled Vidaththaltheevu.
