LTTE Sentry Point in Trincomalee ambushed, one dead, two wounded

[TamilNet, Friday, 24 March 2006, 06:03 GMT]
A Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) cadre was killed and two injured in an attack on the LTTE Forward Defense Line sentry point located in Poonagar in Trincomalee district Thursday around 8 p.m., said LTTE sources in the east. The Tigers charged that the ambushmen had come from the Sri Lanka Army camp in Mahindapura.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Military spokesman Brigadier Prasad Samarasinghe refuted LTTE's claim that the attack was carried out by Sri Lankan troopers.

Gunfire over the Mahindapura SLA Camp was observed Thursday night, according to the Sri Lanka Military spokesman in Colombo.

Mr. S. Elilan, Trincomale District Political Head of the LTTE, has registered a complaint about the attack with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission, LTTE sources said.
