Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) successfully repulsed Sunday around 3:45 p.m, a two pronged attempt by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers to move forward through two fronts to attack the Tiger sentry posts on the Forward Defence Line (FDL) in Paalamoaddai, in Mannaar district. The SLA retreated with losses, Mannaar LTTE Field Operation Command said.
SLA, from its artillery bases in Mannaar, maintained fire into the LTTE area after their troopers pulled back, carrying the wounded.
LTTE combatants did not suffer any casualties in the counter attack.
