Shooters including women cadres from Sothya brigade, Malathy brigade, Kutti Sri Mortar brigade, Charles Anthony Special brigade and from the LTTE military academy participated in the competition.

"A sniper's job is to deliver discriminatory, accurate rifle fire against targets which cannot be engaged successfully by the regular rifleman because of range, size, location, fleeting nature, or visibility. Our cadres chosen for such training develop basic infantry skills to a high degree of perfection. The competition highlights the importance of snipers and allows our cadres to show their marksmanship," Col Theepan said during a previous competition underscoring the importance of marksmanship in LTTE's campaign.

The day's event concluded with cultural events organized by the fighting cadres, LTTE sources said.
