Vanni battles continue

The Sri Lanka Army's 58 Division today captured a 500m area of LTTE defences at Munnikkaai, general area Adampan North. The 57 Division is now advancing on Periyamadu West via Palampiddi. Await a detailed update on Weli Oya Operation.

Meanwhile sources told this site that the LTTE attack on the naval detachment at Erukkalampiddi was in retaliation against the Navy detachment's involvement in diverting Tamil civilians fleeing to India from Mannar battle zone to refugee camps of the government.

The LTTE's hope is to flood South India with refugees for political gain in that country. The capture of refugee boats by the Navy and voluntary surrender by Tamils to the Security Forces is also exposing the LTTE's military positions, strength and strategy.

"The security forces are attacking Mullaitivu, Prabhakaran`s hideout, from several directions. The army`s aim is to capture Prabhakaran. Four divisions of the army would `surge` towards the hideout of Prabhakaran. The troops have to march forward another 21 kilometres to achieve the final goals"

- Lieutenant General Sarath Fonseka

Defencewire, I don't think that's army objective.

Anyways, hope you can get an update for us from Weli Oya front.

Has the strategy for forces got changed during last few weeks?
We were mainly sending 10 heads of LTTE members to hell each day.
Now we are pushing for the land during last few weeks.
Also if forces are 13 miles away from capturing Vanni (as for some media), should make easier for the Special Forces to carry out some high profile hide outs in Vanni soon.
