[TamilNet, Friday, 23 March 2007, 15:08 GMT]
S. Seeralan, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Batticaloa District Deputy head of Political wing, said the attempt by SLA to invade into LTTE territory, from their camps in Unnichai and Vavunathivu, has been successfully thwarted.

An Unmanned aircraft had circled over at Friday noon and after which four Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) kfir fighter jets bombed Vavunathivu area in an effort to lend support to the SLA troops.

In addition to this, the SLA, from its camps in areas under its control in Batticaloa district launched heavy artillery and Multi Barrel Rocket Launcher fire on LTTE held areas from 8:00 a.m Friday to 12:00 noon, Seeralan said.

A Buffel Armoured Personnel Carrier was damaged, and SLA troopers who tried to advance had withdrew when LTTE launched retaliatory attacks on Vavunathivu SLA camp, he added.

Since Vavunathivu is deserted with all residents displaced due to earlier SLA offensives, the bombings did not cause any casualties or injuries.
