Jaffna SLA comment on Kilinochchi battle

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 11 February 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The Sri Lankan security forces headquarters in Jaffna has released a statement about the situation in Kilinochchi-Paranthan-Elephant Pass following the attack on army positions here on February 1. The statement is addressed to the people of Jaffna in Tamil and was issued by Major C.P.J. Fernando on behalf of the Jaffna security forces commander.

It says:

"Dear people of Jaffna. We will not let you all fall again into the pit (Padukuli). The Liberation Tigers attacked Kilinochchi, Paranthan and Elephant Pass early in the morning on February 1, 1998. We successfully repulsed the attack. More than a hundred Tigers were killed in this."

"Yet, only the troops in the forward defences of Kilinochchi tactically withdrew 1.5 kilometers to the rear."

"We inform you that the LTTE could not capture Kilinochchi town or areas in Paranthan or Elephant Pass. You (people of Jaffna) need not worry. We will not let you fall in the pit again"
