The troops did not suffer any casualties, they added.

The security sources also said that details of the damage that they inflicted on the LTTE are not yet available.

The jetty at Kilaly is under the command of the Special Boat Squadron (SBS), the elite special forces wing of the Sri Lanka SLN, modelled after the US Navy SEALS.
