SLA sources in Vavuniyaa said 26 military personnel were wounded in the mission.

The wounded Indian radar operators were airlifted to Colombo for further treatment, according to a reliable military source that confirmed Indian involvement in operating INDRA radar system that monitored the coastal areas of the North East.

One of the wounded Indian radar operator was later airlifted to India from Colombo.

Meanwhile, a political source in Colombo alleged that there were also a few Indian Air Force personnel at the Sri Lankan Vanni SF HQ.
