[TamilNet, Monday, 12 January 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers attacked a Listening Post ahead of Operation Jayasikurui defences at Periyamadu last night killing two Navy personnel deployed there.

It was not known whether the Liberation Tigers had sustained any casualties in the attack.

The army has deployed navy and airforce personnel in several areas north of Vavuniya captured and consolidated since May 13, 1997.

The army has been able to pull out large number of infantry units from these areas for operations in the interior further north towards Mankulam as a result of this.
