Bunkerline overrun north of Giant's Tank

The Sri Lanka Army has details indicating the death of 56 Tigers within the first week of April alone. These tigers were killed in Mannar north, Vavuniya, Weli Oya (Kiriibbanwewa and Janakapura), Muhamalai and Nagarkovil.

Meanwhile troops from the 58 Division overran two bunker lines of the Tigers situated North of Giant's Tank in Mannar. The exact number of Tigers killed in the attack is unclear. However, Army sources claimed 4 SLA were injured in the fighting.

Defencewire,
Where exactly this overrun occured? Is it North of Giant Tank or North of Adampan tank where brig. 58-3 is supposed to be located?
Having being so closed to Adampan from 3 directions, what made 3 brigades of 58 div. yet to capture Adampan? Is it the stiff resistsnace by LTTE or is it a part of the offensive strategy, until madu captures.

=56/7 = 8 a day

not at all enough and below the daily quota.

but i guess we have hit a hard patch and progress is slow.

anyway, i don't want to be a keyboard warrior.

if you are employed $250 is just a day's salary or at most two days' salary.

General area north of Giant's Tank and general area south of Adampan! I am sure that this "general area" is even larger than Russia.

"Hope we win the war before that if not I only hope I stay unemployed until then cos the bet is only valid if i become employed by then.."

LOL

he he... let's see what out ltte boot licking hyenas have to say when madhu and adampan is captured...

If the news tem is accurate, SLA has already rounded up adampan on three directions. the vedithalathivu LTTE mother camp is the only hope for adampan now.

hopefully there won't be a Madhu type situ. in thirukeswaram.

LTTE maggots,
where is norway? they learnt a good lesson in SL didn't they and will not come back again.

LTTE's planning has gone wrong now. just two days after killing the minister for catholic affairs, they want the IC to intevene to 'protect' a catholic shrine!!

they made a mockery of themsleves!

bloody LTTE pistol gang has reappeared in jaffna. some work for the northern paramilitants.

From earlier post,
"perein,
What rebellion is allowed in LTTE? They will be shot to death. Its a bunch of young uneducated starving Tamil youth sent to their death for an imaginary homeland. What more can you expect?"

It's not about the getting those low level terrorists to become rebellions.
It's getting them to punished them selves while they are live, by knowing these facts (Higher level are running away etc).
What's more than getting them to suffer by knowing those facts just before execution?

I would say they would tactically withdraw. There "Military Spokesman" would say that area was of least significance. LOL.

Jasaya,
As the article states, it was north of Giant's tank. Adampan has two small tanks, one in the south, one in the west of the junction. These were not the area where this particular attack occurred.

perein,
My argument is, even if they realised senior leaders have left the area, what can these chuttas do? If they leave, they will be shot by LTTE. If they remain they will be shot by Army. We cannot hope for a Tamil insurrection against the Tigers because they will all be killed. This is not a democracy that we are talking about here.
