A group of Sri Lanka Army soldiers who attempted to move towards Naavatku'lam in Liberation Tigers controlled territory in Vavuniya Mannar border Sunday morning were repulsed and 2 SLA soldiers were killed, LTTE's military spokesman told media. On Saturday, five days after the Tigers shot down a Sri Lankan jet fighter, the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) attacked Puthukkudiyiruppu in Mullaiththeevu district. Meanwhile, 3 Sea Tigers were killed in action Friday night, when a sea-fight broke off Pulmoaddai in the north-east coast. Both the LTTE and the Sri Lanka Navy claimed to have inflicted heavy damage on the other in the clash off Pulmoaddai seas.

The sea-fight off Pulmoaddai had lasted throughout the night till Saturday morning.

LTTE military spokesman, Irasiah Ilanthirayan, who spoke to reporters in Kilinochchi Sunday said that the Tiger fighters in Vavuniya/Mannar border have seized ammunitions after repulsing a SLA assault unit.

The fight broke out around 6:00 in the morning.

On Saturday, a group of civilians who were fleeing SLAF bombardment around 11:40 a.m. in Puthukkudiyiruppu, narrowly escaped from the air strike.
