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.
