Full extent of LTTE Puthukudirippu attack

The full extent of an LTTE plan and series of coordinated attacks at Puthukudirippu has come to light. The attack, which started as an infiltration on January 31st, went on till the Independence Day on 4th February. The objective of the LTTE was to push the Army back to Oddusudan. We have now fully pieced together the exact extent of the various attacks that took place during this period, particularly from the 2nd to the 4th of February.

On 31st January, a small 30-man LTTE team belly-crawled through a muddy lagoon in the Nanthi Kandal lagoon undetected by 59 Division sentries. The muddy lagoon was almost impassable and was hence largely unmanned. LTTE teams, well versed in the area having operated in the area themselves, took maximum advantage of their knowledge of the terrain.

The team infiltrated the SLA dominated area a few kilometers. Fortunately for them and rather unfortunately for the army, 3 bus loads of unsuspecting soldiers on leave who had just received their pay, were boarding the buses unarmed. The Tigers waited for the buses to move and blasted several powerful claymore mines while firing RPG-7s at the buses killing around 60 soldiers.

In another separate series of attacks, Tiger suicide bombers disguised as civilians approached the 59 Division FDL manned by 7 Gemunu Watch. The FDL was nothing but a series of checkpoints along the Puthukudirippu-Oddusudan road and former LTTE trench lines manned by small SLA teams. The suicide bombers detonated their lorry bombs killing the sentries instantly and immediately afterwards, wave after wave of Tigers started attacking 7 GW and the reinforcements from TF-4.

At the same time, trucks mounted with 30mm canons forced their way along the road towards TF-4 dominated areas. The Tiger plan was to recapture Mulaitivu and raise the Eelam flag on 4th of February in defiance of the government's elaborate Independence Day celebrations on the same day.

But the Tigers' expectation of a complete military reversal never took place. 7 GW soldiers fought to the very end, with one soldier launching a suicide attack using a couple of Claymore mines strapped on to himself. The 59, which has only 3 committed Brigades, was immediately reinforced by the 57, which had 2 Brigades in the reserve. Additionally, the 57 Division Commander Maj. Gen. Jagath Chula Dias, perhaps the most respected Commander alongside Prasanna Silva, took over the reigns. The 53 Division was also brought in, which was placed in reserve since the recapture of Elephant Pass.

The fiercest attack came in waves particularly on the night of the 3rd. Tigers managed to capture 2 T-55 battle tanks, but were unable to take them away, so they destroyed it with RPGs. But by 2nd February, the 3 Special Forces, which was in reserve throughout the Vanni Humanitarian Operation, swung into action.

Special Forces teams infiltrated the area and launched deadly attacks while assisting normal infantry troops to hold the line from falling beyond 3kms from the original FDL. Over 1,000 LTTE cadres bore down upon them, but the unit held itself and all other units together as usual in heroic fashion.

The CO of the deployed Special Forces teams, a Major, led the counter-attack from the very front. An experienced SF captain and several other soldiers sacrificed their lives in the process. This was how the rest of the country was able to celebrate Independence Day 2009 with their head held high.

It is rather unfortunate that the bravery and the heroism of does not get mentioned as this news was not published It is not like you can fight this war with zero casualties

ak47 said...

Thanks DW

Was all 30 LTTE members die ? were we able to capture some ? Also is it true that Charles Anothony is leading the Ariwing ? How did he get to vanni from Ireland and when.

Thanks in advance

" Were all 30 killed"... sorry for the typo.

Peter said...

these all are fake....

our thalaivar has done a big changes in his life....

now he has discovered the South India as our motherland and we will get the freedome there..

even we cant talk here with all moda bandas...

Thanks DW, again for an excellent report.

Ak47, the 30 man team was decimated. Most of the ones involved in human waves also died...

Sam, I left you a small note on the earlier thread, thought you might be interested.

Rover said...

Ali, books and thesis will be written about how this war was fought when this is over.

Rover said...

I meant theses.

Rover said...

In this LTTE counter-attack, the initial penetration was done, pretty much the same way our teams initiated the attack on Mullativu.

So our planners knew what the LTTE did was a possibility. Man power was a problem, and this was in the back of the minds of some of the planners. They were planning to fix this, but were a little too late. Paid the price for it.

{{{LTTE has intensified forcible child recruitment - UNICEF
The LTTE has intensified forcible recruitment of civilians and that children as young as 14 years old are now being targeted, said UNICEF Office in Colombo today.

"These children are facing immediate danger and their lives are at great risk. Their recruitment is intolerable," said Philippe Duamelle, UNICEF's Representative in Sri Lanka.

From 2003 to the end of 2008, UNICEF has recorded more than 6000 cases of children recruited by the LTTE. "Child soldiers suffer physical abuse, traumatic events and face death. Instead of hope, fear defines their childhood," said Duamelle.

UNICEF also said it was extremely alarmed at the high number of children being injured in the fighting in the northern area of Sri Lanka known as the Vanni. "Scores of injured children have been evacuated in the past week," said UNICEF's Duamelle. "Children are victims of this conflict by being killed, injured, recruited, displaced, separated and denied their every day needs due to the fighting."

Here is the text of the statement from the UNICEF

}}}

LTTP still doing child recruitments.

Hi Friends, this is an email received by me today.

"Today, the Sri Lankan Embassy was informed about a huge, possibly the final, protest/rally/demonstration by Tamil LTTE supporters from Canada and other states to be held in front of the White House on this Friday (20th) from 10 - 4 (please see the attached email by those LTTE supporters).

So the Sri Lankan Embassy is organizing a counter-protest on the same day at the same venue with the help of ALL the Sri Lankans in the Washington DC and other States. The Ambassador has even arranged a bus from Florida to pick people up from the southern states and to arrive in DC on Friday morning. He's also coordinating to get people down from NY/NJ and other nearby states.

So as locals, showing up on Friday is the least we could do to show our support to our motherland and ACT against these idiotic, brain-washed, supporters of those terrorists. I know Friday is a working day, but it'd be great if we could all show up (I will be taking the day off). This probably is our last chance to show our support in this manner, as the end to this bloody war is not too far away.

I will forward an official email tomorrow once the embassy finalizes the details, but please spread the word NOW and get every Sri Lankan and non-Sri Lankan to show up on Friday to support our country. We may even have to create some posters and banners; we will know more details (the slogans to use etc.) about that tomorrow.

I will forward the official email about this (or you may receive it from other sources) with specific details tomorrow and you can use that to inform your friends."

There is a protest in-front of the White House organized by LTTE to save LTTE from annihilation.

All the LTTE Supporters have been invited to attend.

http://www.tamilgenocide.9hz.com/

They are taking people in buses from Canada to the White House.

We expect number of LTTE terrorists to attend this rally, and sending the lists to the FBI.

If you know any names of the LTTErs residing in Canada, please submit to FBI through the following link.

https://tips.fbi.gov/


Hopefully, FBI would pick them at the border for few interviews.

Please copy and email this to your contacts. So far we have about 450 names.

DW,

Thanks for the excellent update.

In your oppinion how many LTTE's are remain in Wanni?

You mentioned about 1000 LTTE participating in these attacks.

However SLA says only 700-1000 tigers left in Wanni.

cj said...

the number of Tigers must be higher than 1000,otherwise they couldn´t hold on their terrain for such a long time. I think,their number is still between 2000 and 5000,but many of them are demoralized young recruits,their resistance is wild and chaotic. But such a form of resistance is also dangerous for our troops,because chaos is an advantage for the LTTE and their human shields

I suspected something was wrong for last 10 days. So my worst fears come true at last. When those Tamil buggers started posting 59 was wiped out and 57 is pushed back, I knew they got some bits and pieces here and there.

Thanks God that they couldn’t reverse the progress of SLDF. Our boys should be extra vigilant for next few weeks because tigers have do or die battle on their hands now.

I guessed some thing was wrong .Our brothers and sisters sacrificed their tomorrow for our today . We all should remember them and we will.
Peter finally you understand the truth .This much time your talivar thought 60 million tamils in TN originated from tiny north east of Sri lanka .
any way peter remember we are not against any minority in this country and accept that they have born rights to live in our mother land with us . Same time they would be having the same rights .Any other country in this world you will never get this much rights .
Eg. As far as I know Tamil is not an official language of Canada or any other western country ..(may be now it is... sorry mate correct me if I am wrong )
We can give you so many eg.. s.
If you start to fight in TN :))You will see how Indian government would crush you on the spot .but it would be a reasonable war .

Dear All Friends TO BE ALERT ..

According to latest Intelligence reports, the LTTE has decided to attack both military and civilian targets in the South to disrupt civilian life as much as possible. MI warns of an LTTE plan to attack several major cities simultaneously including Colombo and cause widespread panic and fear among civilians.

Borella

Nugegoda

Pettah

Kottawa

Homagama

Maharagama

Buses and Railway

Kandy-bus stand and railway station

Gampola

The WTC twin towers,

Colombo

harbour and

the city of Kandy

are said to be among primary targets of the LTTE. According to MI, LTTE intelligence cadres 'disguised as beggars', differently-abled people and sales representatives have already been

deployed to gather intel on these targets...

Send this to all your relatives & friends in Sri Lanka and inform them to be alert.

Gas Attack in Colombo VERY SOOOOONNNNNNN.......

Its always beyond our comprehension, it's unimaginable sometimes. But it always happened making us helpless and ashamed. Our defenses denied LTTE having aircrafts. Proclaimed to shoot them down the moment they are airborne. Blamed people like Iqbal Athas as traitors for reporting it. But now it has become a fact, they managed to invade our airspace six times and escape without a scratch.

Recently media reported that LTTE is planning to use chemical weapons. Our defenses denied it bluntly, weeks after that they attacked our army using chemical weapons. Well its said to be none lethal version, CS gas. But this news is startling. It's reported that some of our soldiers became ill after that.

What if LTTE use these weapons on civilians, CS gas in a fully packed bus could be lethal enough to kill many innocent people. Or they could even use a lethal gas like Chlorine.Like in Japan.LTTE will only have minor effect on our army. If they use gas in open areas .Chemical weapons are successful only if they are deployed in large amounts, Possibly from air. But there is a possibility of LTTE using chemical weapons on civilians. Government should take necessary steps in advising the public of ways to survive a gas attack.

Lets not wait to close the gate after the horse has run away. These are some ways to survive Mustard or chlorine attack.

Chlorine Gas

1.Yellow,green gas with the strong smell of bleach might be chlorine
2.Move quickly into an area with clean air
3. try to hold your breath until you move away.
3. Don't stay indoors
4. Move to higher ground ( chlorine is denser than air)
5. Urinate on a cloth and hold it to your nose (urine crystallize chlorine, this could be very useful . for our army).
6. Remove cloths which touched the gas.
7. Do not vomit.
8. Wash your body throughly.
9. Stay calm, panicking may increase the amount of gas that you inhale
10. Don't try to cover your kids face, try to cover your nose first
then you can help the kids

Mustard Gas

1. Burning or itching on the skin or onion smell gas is a sign of musted gas
2.Move to higher ground
3.Cover your skin to avoid burning
4. Do not vomit, drink milk
5. Wash your body throughly.

If you have any other information please add-up, Can anyone translate this into sinhala and tamil post in a blog, or circulate among people. It Could be useful, lets not wait until the government do it, they are always late.
----


Dear All,

Please take all possible preventive measures on the interest of security in your work places, homes, markets, schools, banks, vehicles, trains, bus stops, temples, churches or where ever you move out. It may be on the road during your day to day business in the future because, information has been received that very serious calamity is been planed out by the LTTE to cause in the south or central, in the coming period.

Take care of your children more than any other times and educated all inmates of homes, office,schools or else where.

Special attention have to be taken for those in the security services and their homes etc.

Please educate all your friends and relations on this to take adequate care to avoid mass escalations to human lives and their properties.

if any suspicious person even a beggar is noticed by you, take steps quickly to inform security authorities and the people around.

See mail below for your interest.

With best regards

Timely update DW.

Some questions if I may. How come 57 has two reservs? I thought 572 and 574 were in operation and 571 was securing the tanks at the back?

I think this one well complements to the long ranger's article in a good ground sense while the long ranger reveals the strategical sense.

Also there's a new blog supposedly from a LTTE inteligence wing member. David Blacker posted it on Long ranger's blog. Very good read.

This Friday, join the rally to save Terrorism at Washington DC.

The Terrorists have been surrounded and no where to go. Terror-Friendly Tamils (Future Al Qaida outsource) are from Canada and USA are going to rally around the White House with the theme 'Genocide' to save Tamil Tigers from Extinction.

For people in USA, Tamil Tigers are the people who inspired USS Cole attack that killed scores of marines, Okalahoma City Bombing, and WTC attack on 911.

These Terror-Friendly Tamils are coming to your backyard to USA your democracy to save Your Terrorists.

Well, now days Terror-Friendly Tamils are working everywhere including your Nuclear plants. There is good chemistry between Al Qaida and LTTE for Osama bin Ladin to activate LTTE sleeper cells in the west.

Let the power of Terrorists shine in front of the White house on Friday.

Please tell your leaders not to touch any my folks in Kandy. Any harm to my remaining kin and I know how to get at you. I am no modaya like others so keep away from civilian life in Kandy. I know a lot about you and how to get your guys so be warned. They have nothing to do with this conflict and any one time one of them will be in town minding one’s business.
One of your two bit idiots challnged me on a blogg to visit him at a place in Bati,but never turned up because face to face you are nothing after that day I went through your areas all the way to Katharagama going through Lahugala and your guys knew us in Kathankudi and we were expecting you to way lay us there instead you killed a young STF sentry the day Kadiar was killed, the day Chales Wijeratne (SSP) in Jaffna was killed in the most cowardly way who went to the tiger camp on a flag of truce and seeing his body mutilated at the funral in kurunagala compelled us to think your leaders are nothing but animals that should not be given an inch in that once peaceful land.So not all of are modayas for you guys to bully so our dokys didn't realize that there were 7 air fields we knew that you had 5 about 3 years ago but they never took us serious.I know your guys have escaped south any harm to my kin I know how to get your guys lurking around in Kandy.

I forgot to mention, expect another well trained LTTE Tamil self-immolation in Washington DC on Friday.

A brainwashed Tamil boy from Tamil Eelam may have already arrived in USA to douse gasoline on him to energize protesters.

Call your police in Washington DC and ask them to be ready.

"The muddy lagoon was almost impassable and was hence largely unmanned."

never assume anything in future. these sakkiliyas can even come out of the toilet pit!!

i assign it TOTALLY to the the ABSENCE of a ground surveillence radar.

the earlier claim that LTTE has only 700 left is now rubbished.

at least 24 hour UAV surveillence should be carried out.

May God bless our soldiers. We shall forever remember those who left us to protect us. Dear God take them to your heavenly kingdom.

This story seems very strange. We were aware of the SLA report of their blowing up an armour-plated lorry with 30 terrorists inside that tried to bulldoze into SLA controlled area. However there was no other news of a major battle around 31 Jan - 4th feb time period. DW, what evidence is there to back up your story, and if so then would you please share them with us.

I hope you have a peaceful stay in SL and I mean it. I am getting pissed off in Sl.We the innocent public had the same problem during the JVP insurrection in 89/90 where the bloody politicians were well guarded in 5 star hotels while we were threatened by that lot and we took law into our hands to defend our lives and property where the cops were spineless hiding in side cop shops. These terrorists coming to our door steps take a new dimension and I have a whole network of good faithful Tamils and others who knows every hill and ever street in Kandy and any harm to my people will be dealt as I know the cops are only there for the politicians and not for the humble public with whom I identify myself with. Tiger cause is flawed serving no one but the crooked Diaspora. I can show miles of video footage I have taken in those areas and not a sausage was given to the poor Tamils. I know how desperate your young fighters I met were for better life and I met them during the Toppigala fiasco as they were herded like cattle to fight this war. That day they passed me on to karuna’s people at the next hamlet and they have seen the video of great escape and they thought that we were crazy like Steve McQueen travelling in motor bikes. So tell the tigers that not everyone a pushover because we are crazy like in films and we will take law into our hands. So please keep away from Kandy we would like the politicians to keep away from there as well.If anything happens Siva will spend hours in a smelly cesspit so you get my drift?

this tamil racist says,

“I very strongly urge that the Forces be asked to restrain from any further aerial bombing and also to stop firing shells and artillery attacks. The capture of the remaining areas could wait till all the trapped persons are brought out safely, while the war goes on.”

what the fcuk this sakkiliya has to do with our military strategies???

this is the SAME demand LTTE, nadesung is making.

if we wait till all the trapped civilians are brought out, we will be waiting INDEFINITELY!!!!

now his stripes are clear even to an idiot. so this is the same man who says a federal solution must be found.

why doesn't douglas d make this type of bullshit statements??

Patriots,

At the final phase of the war against ruthless terror outfit LTTE, numerous attempts to discredit the Sri Lanka government and distort the image of the country and its Armed Forces by various international bodies which are misguided by Tamil Diaspora propaganda machines are continuing to grow at alarming rate.

SLG is launching attacks on all fronts against LTTE as well as is defending our image at international level in unprecedented manner. Tamil Diaspora is trying their best to halt and suppress foreign aid and military assistance to Sri Lanka in order to save dying LTTE from total annihilation.

Our enemies have organised against us in India and applying pressure to Indian centre government urging for a forceful intervention on our internal conflict. The idea is to halt military offensives by applying diplomatic pressure to bail out tiger leader Prabhakaran from inevitable end of his murderous campaign.

We all should commend our president, defence secretary, army commander and all other patriots who helping the SLG to overcome external forces that are hostile to our country and unity of the nation.

Moshe Dyan said...

Dear Mr President, the Defence Secretary, MoD,

URGENT PLEASE

I write in reference to the LTTE demand of stopping the humanitarian operations came from the TAMIL United Liberation Front leader.

He "very strongly" urges that the Forces be asked to restrain from any further aerial bombing and also to stop firing shells and artillery attacks.

As you know aerial attacks and artillery attacks are the backbone of our defence. Stopping these will severely endanger security forces and civilians. It will also prolong the conflict and get more and more international attention.

Althought the TAMIL United Liberation Front leader may have heaps of experience, he has no expertise to urge the government on military matters. Besides Tamil people rejected him at the 2 April 2004 General Election!

He further urges that the capture of the remaining areas could wait till all the trapped persons are brought out safely, while the war goes on.

This is a highly ambiguous statement. If the liberation of civilians and their rightful land stop, that will be a crime. It is essentially equal to stopping the war.

I very strongly urge you not to entertain the demands of the TAMIL united liberation front's leader and continue the humanitarian operations. Giving into his demands justifies his claim that Sri Lankan troops are killing civilians.

Why haven't he urged the LTTE at the same time to stop firing artillery, mortars, RPGs at our troops and civilians?

I'm sure you will not entertain this type of clumsy and partial demands and instead allow the experts a freehand in running the war as it should be run. Their increasing and improving commitment to saving civilians is highly commendable and even the UN and UNICEF have accepted this.

May God bless you all.

I dream of a country without racist politics where political parties are not race-based but people-based.

The LTTE Insider said...

DefenceWire,

Thanks for a good inside report. Hats off to the soldiers! I just can’t believe that even a SL Army soldier can commit suicide attack. I am a former LTTE cadre myself and totally oppose any means of suicide attempt no matter what. I believe that no one has the right to take his/her life and is a pure sin. It is also one of the prime reasons why I left LTTE with many others and I (we are) am really happy with my (our) decision now. Pirabhakaran can boast that his black tigers are brave heroes and all that baloney but it’s only propaganda and psy-ops for outsiders. If you want to know the reality of this suicide killers check out my new blog below…

I can add to what you said about a…sangaree
It was on the 15th of Nov ‘07 where he was invited to the Imperial Collage for Children’s show organized by the London HC and we were very closed to him in the VIP area. It was a multi religious and multi ethnic show where each ethnic group did their own performance but there was one performance where the Tamil baratha natiyam dancers dancing with the Sinhalese Kandy an dancers and we noticed that he never cheered or capped at that performance and after that day I lost my respect to him as a moderate. My mates there videoed him not cheering that act. This type of stupid prejudice had torn our country instigated by silly people like him since 1935.

i was not so sharp about his skillful moves until a few months back.

now i'm fully convinced he is not for ethnic integration and ending the war. his constant arguments and fights with douglas and dayan also highlighted this.

the way the govt uses him is great. he is a GOOD servant, a poor master and a disastrous consultant.

it is unfortunate that SL only has this type of "moda-rate" politicians.

Rover said...

The LTTE insider,

"I just can’t believe that even a SL Army soldier can commit suicide attack. "

Mate, I think you are missing the point here. The SLA soldier did the suicide attack only against the enemy soldiers and not against civilians. This is legitimate in wars.

He would have been threatened so much so (even surrounded by the LTTE cadres, who would have tortured him if captured alive); or he would have seen a lot of our soldiers and assets in danger that he carried out his attack.

Suicide attacks are not uncommon in WWII and in many other battles. The problem is when it is directed against civilians, as the LTTE does.

Moshe Dyan said...

"40,000 people prepared to die in battle if no ceasefire called"

fantastic!! may their wish be granted.

my earlier mahaveer family members calculation came up to 23,000.

so without exageration, LTTE + civilian militias = 40,000 - 23,000 = 17,000

another approach.

when the civilians were 150,000, LTTE said it was 400,000. if you apply the same rate of exageration,

LTTE + civilian militias = 150,000/400,000 x 40,000
= 15,000

this means LTTE has another 15,000 - 17,000 fighters (with armed civilians) left.

kill them all.

KILL MORE, ACHIEVE MORE!!

Moshe, I meant long term.

The political system in Sri Lanka does not really help develop any true moderates. I think we need to work on that.

Moshe Dyan said...

"one soldier launching a suicide attack using a couple of Claymore mines strapped on to himself."

he would NEVER have been randomly picked by his superior. that is inhuman. also SLA soldiers generally do not have access to claymore mines. strapping "a couple of" claymore mines around him is no accident. that requires LONG planning, geting the mines, readying the mines and executing it.

it is not like running to a bulldoser with grnedes on both hands. that is sponteneous.

i assign it TOTALLY to the the ABSENCE of a ground surveillence radar.

Moshe, when we foul up, we have to admit it; or we will never learn.

I assign our unnecessary casualties in this attack TOTALLY to inattention and overconfidence on the part of our SLA leaders. They should never leave a flank, albeit "protected" by a lagoon, unprotected and unmonitored, given that WE KNOW the LTTE's penchant for resorting to sea/ lagoon borne surprise attacks. We also knew they were removing cannon from their sea attack craft for use on land, very likely mounted on vehicles. We had plenty of reserve troops: all of Div 53, TF4, 2 Brigades of Div 57, and STF available, to deploy in these protective and surveillance functions. What on earth were they doing?

MOD/SLA had ample warning. If not from others, they had warning from me. I expected such an attack, in even greater strength, to envelope and destroy a major part of Div 59, before Parathan/ Kilinochchi, N-M-K and EPS fronts fell. I sent a detailed email alert, that I recently published at this blog, to both MOD and SLA. In that email, I warned that Div59 was the most vulnerable of all units confronting the LTTE at that time, and that an attempt to envelope and destroy it by an attack mdirected North from Mullaitivu and South from Puthukkudyiruppu to meet ahead of Oddusuddan could be mounted against Div59 soon. We are fortunate that it came about a month later than when I said it could, because now the LTTE forces are much more depleted, and our forces are much more concentrated along a smaller front to oppose them in depth.

I pray that our commanders would take a lesson from this, to not leave the flanks unprotected on the basis of assumptions made regarding natural barriers, the enemy's ability to quickly shift forces from one front to another, and the number of fighters they still have available. They can shift rear-guard activities to recent recruits, and launch their hardcore fighters on demand. Time and again, they have exploited our flawed assumptions.

The lives of these soldiers were largely lost through inattention and overconfidence. We need some additional guidance and oversight from the SLA leadership to ensure that it does not recur.

Moshe Dyan said...

ananda,

mostly agree with you.

i remember reading your warning.

but what could SLA do when a massive tiger wave hit them. even if they were prepared generally to face tiger attacks, there is very little they could do unless they knew exactly where the attack will hit (to the right village), when and the strength of the tiger attack force.

a ground surveillence radar (like AMSTAR) would have pinpointed to the exact location, exact strength (including vehicles) of tigers and their constant movement.

given the area, one unit is enough. it can also pinpoint tiger arti gun movements, tank/truck movement, civilian movement, plane/boat movement. it can even track low flying aircraft.

after the war it can be used to monitor what goes on inside vast jungles, "unmanable" terrain/beaches, etc.

we are also expecting (armed) human waves. we can only disperse them if we know EVERYTHING in advance.

another possibility is taking sinhala villages close to padaviya, etc. hostage after breaching the 59 FDL.

i still strongly feel we need the AMSTAR radar or equivalant.

Moshe, I generally agree with your statement about the need for advanced RADAR. However, remotely deployed radar can help detect vehicles and large masses of men, but not small advance teams moving single file into position at night. Ultimately, the grunts on the ground have to be deployed with forward screens with night vision equipment, and the screens have to be alert expecting all out suicidal attacks from a cornered enemy.

From DW's post, and other snippets of news I had before that, they didn't have observation teams (i.e., pickets, to use an obsolete term) ahead of the FDL. The lagoon shore was basically unguarded and not under surveillance. There was a news item about a soldier manning a Recoil-less Artillery Gun protecting a road who was caught by surprise, and was taken out before the armored APC lorry was demolished by an MBT. Also, where were the infantry teams supporting the two T-55s that were knocked out by the LTTE? Lots of questions remaining to be asked and answered here.

Very sketchy report considering the media ban.


Haven't we seen attack on unarmed soldiers and their buses before?

How come we couldn't protect them?

What has happened to the anticipation?
This is a big loss if true.

[The team infiltrated the SLA dominated area a few kilometers. Fortunately for them and rather unfortunately for the army, 3 bus loads of unsuspecting soldiers on leave who had just received their pay, were boarding the buses unarmed. The Tigers waited for the buses to move and blasted several powerful claymore mines while firing RPG-7s at the buses killing around 60 soldiers.}

Moshe Dyan said...

i'm not disputing your assessment.

the radar in question actually can track an individual 15 km away even at night (if required)! vehicles 42 km away. it is portable as well. it is unique and would be expensive no doubt. will send you details of it.

btw, SLA has copied UNP slogan and declared 'enough is enough'. now SLA has another division other than 57,58 and TF3 on the A35 intercepting from the west of PTK. so far 33% of civilians have moved to the new safe zone in the coast.

a suggestion for ANOTHER safety zone.

1. SLDFs should tactically withdraw from the SLA controlled area south of the current safety zone. (after capturing a few more landmass in this area).

2. declare this previously SLA held area as the new safety zone. dismantle all possible LTTE hiding places in the terrain. leave enough tents, food, medicine as an added incentive.

3. ppl & tigers will move in. unfortunately for the tigers there won't be hiding places (bunkers, etc.). also tiger infrastructure will not be there.

4. remaining tigers in other areas will be doomed. kill them after 48 hours of declaring the new safety zone.

5. those pussies crossed to the NEW safety zone will be like the cat which shitted on a rock!!!!

this way it is easier to filter out tigers from civilians.

Plenty of shuffles happened in all fronts.

Our guys have taken the A35, and TF 2 and TF4 have crossed the A35 to the Old Safe Zone.

Some special infantry units of the 58 including Commandos and Special Forces have come along the A35 to attack PTK from west, while 53 is attacking PTK from south. TF 8 is used to cover Gaps of the FDL between 53 and 59. It’ll be 53 or 58 who will take PTK.

59 and 57 are defensive for the moment and a unit of 55 is moving towards south from north.

I got this information from an unconfirmed source. Can Duzz or anyone confirm this please?

LK Information 17 Feb 2009 23:53:10 GMT

The total loss is much less, i will comment on this soon, as we now have a military clampdown on strategic plans.

but this is partially true except for the bus attack, total loss is 30 odd soldiers


the information in the above article are put together by arm chair defense analysts who listen to voice of tigers radio. this is how they keep falling in the statements they make but unable to substantiate.

ltte lost at least 300 - 600 odd people in that attack during the 2-3 weeks, it included a cream of ipd and rh regiments.

so ltte got a bloodier lick than they expected, if follow tamilnet it did not go forward once they realised the attack was hopeless.

just too many man and material in reserve and highly mobile for ltte to counter.

can put 20,000 in three spots at any time if sla wants besides fighting in so many fronts.

ltte cant even think to do this.

From what I heard, 58 are few km’s from PTK is because, after TF2 and TF 4 took the A35, 58 were brought in to attack PTK from west. 58 haven’t cleared all the way from north. 57 is taking over some positions of 58 and TF 3 from 57. TF2 and TF4 will clear towards north. I don’t know. This is what I heard. Can some one confirm this??? Vajira, Duzz???

Anywayz, Looks like 58 is crushing the LTTE defences while 53 is attacking from the south. It’s said that the LTTE carders in the front are crying for help. Our guys are expecting a good result soon after the shuffel lu.

Can anyone tell what is the size of 100 SQ KM comparing colombo

Ananda-USA said...

Moshe,

Please check your email & advise. Thx.

lion said...

it is very concerning that 60 "unarmed" soldiers were killed.
Soldiers should never be unarmed especially in a war zone.
Never underestimate the enemy!
How did they manage to capture two tanks!
Complacency is a big killer.

Puran Appu said...

rocky,

Thanks Bro. I heard that a Unit of the 55 is moving down from the land side. Not from the narrow strip. May be they are maintaining an active defence??

I conveyed your complain regarding the UAV. They might get back to you.

Hanas bro,

Don’t worry much about the desperate calls of who eats cat shit. The whole world knows who the LTTE is now.

UN Security Council cannot do any thing against us. Russia and China is with us no matter what.

Most of the countries are in our side now. Anyone will support when you are wining and they all know the value of our loving country.

Ninja said...

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has received an invitation from President Mahinda Rajapakse to visit Sri Lanka but he has still not decided whether he will visit the country, UN spokesperson Michele Montas told media yesterday.

Puran Appu said...

lion,

Dont worry. These things happen.

There had been some gaps of our FDL earlier. Our guys didn’t have thought that the LTTE will penetrate via these gaps, but they did. Now, all those gaps are been covered. 59 is defensive and TF 8 is covering the GAPS.

LTTE is having a tough time now becoz, SLA opened a new front to take PTK and it’s the best 2 offensive divisions who are heading towards PTK from 2 directions.

rocky bro,

Thanks again for confirming my previous comment regarding the shuffles.

Hanas said...

Yes Puran,

We should be proud of our president and how he sustain the pressure.

Meanwhile that two 130mm Artillery guns worth 8 crore. We have to thank the tamil diaspora for this.

Soldier never been unarmed in war zone.this story made up by defencewire. in war zone soldiers keep arms while they are sleeping.i have seen this. no point of transporting soldier from one place to other without weapons.

Puran Appu said...

rocky,

You are right Bro.

It's the 58-1 Brigade which is advancing from North to the South. But still they have a long way to cover. I heard some thing about 55moving down from land. Wondering what it is....

Puran Appu,

I also see this news item which says 58 is closing in Puththu from west but I thought it is mistake by army.lk hence defence.lk too.

If 58 comes to Puththu it should be from north! not west. Only 57 is approaching from west.

Could you clarify this macho!

ninja,

i just saw it on mid day ITN news telecast.

it'll be posted later. LTTE thinks they can get eelam by blocking information. another peelam day dream.

however i wish defense.lk speak to utube administarators in USA direct thru our embassy & arrange to buy their own space.

they can warn utube about fake copyright claims by peelam losers.

LTTE free loading lazy refugee losers in white countries have lots of free time to do mischief. (in between fits of toilet washing & whining about HR). ha ha ha!

Rana Bro,

From what i heard, 582 Brigade was re-located to attack PTK from west along with Special units via A35.

53 is attacking PTK from South.

581 is attacking from North, but still they have along way to cover.

Anniyan said...

LTTE they must pay what they did,no more discussions,they killed incint people,

Sam Perera said...

youtube,

Patriots, use this site for the videos.

Minnal said...

LTTE officially claimed that they have destroyed five SLA vehiles including two MBT on Feb o1 in their pre-emptive strike. DW report on the same day said two MBT damaged with a bus and 15 soldiers KIA. But DW's this reports says that LTTE capture 2 MBTs on Feb 3rd. So, Did SLA lose totally 4 MBTs?? What is the total casualties on SLA from Feb 01 to Feb 04 in the battle south PTK?

When SLA orginal FDL pushed back to 3km back, do we have to ruled out the report of capturing 30 mortar lauchers (120mm, 81mm & 60mm) with thousands of shells in those area.

Patriots,

Updated Battle Map at Army.lk

The Jaffna Mango is becoming a Betti Amba!

cj said...

LOL,this updated map is already old. Our troops are now on the northern and western outskirts of PTK,the LTTE has only PTK and the 20-kilometer long coastline left. Maybe 60 sq kilometers left,not more

cj said...

yesterday the 58th took PTK-West,three miles away from PTK main town. At the same time the Task Force 4 seized the A-35 one mile away from PTK-town. This morning the 58th and Task Force 4 have united one mile west of PTK-Town. The 53th and Task Force 8 are on the southern outskirts of PTK. At the same time other brigades of the 58th are now two miles north of PTK. The complete old "Safe Zone" has been seized and the Challai lagoon has also been taken by the 58th. Battle for PTK-town will start in the next hours

Puran Appu said...

Heavy clashes ensued in both north and south of A-35 road (Paranthan- Mullaittivu) as troops of 2 Commando Regiment (2CR), 11 Sri Lanka Light Infantry (11SLLI), 10 SLLI, 7 Sinha Ragiment (7SR), 12 Gamunu Watch (12GW), and 8GW maneuvering from north entered into the Puthukkudiyiruppu West areas.

Puran Appu,

Thanks Machan, you are doing a sterling gold service to patriots and we will never forget it bro.

Ananada-USA,

Thanks for your invitation which I never expected after Amma Gahai's betrayal of the worst kind. That bugger accused me of hypocrisy while listening to a friend over a drink that is offered by the same friend over friendship for a crook that hid his credentials like hyena not second to LTTE supreme.

@ Ananda-USA,

Mate, thanks for inviting me for your secret blog (cult) with selected friends but I am not cheap sell-out like you. You are nothing but cheap show case like Asithri and Priyashantha who doesn’t know patriotism even if it falls onto their head.

You go ahead and do your part, I will do mine for our mother land mate. I cannot possible call you a mate any more though we graduated from the same engineering faculty some times back. I still think you are a disgrace to our profession.

Sorry dude, I can't figure out what you say about AGG clear enough. The quoted below almost looks like a run-on sentence.

"That bugger accused me of hypocrisy while listening to a friend over a drink that is offered by the same friend over friendship for a crook that hid his credentials like hyena not second to LTTE supreme."

Anyway, take a good rest.

The final goal of the 57div was to reach visuamadu western boundary.. now the entire division is at reserve and are doing clearing operations and receiving civilians.

one 58 brigade is going westwords towards puthu with Tf2 and tf3 and 4.

another 58 brigade is bearing down on puthu from the north parallel to the 55th coming down from the coast.

India reiterates call for LTTE to lay down arms

India today asked the LTTE to give up their weapons and said it was ready to work with Sri Lanka to evacuate civilians caught up in the war zone.

Making a statement in the Lok Sabha, External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee said the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) would “best serve the interest of the Tamils by immediately releasing all civilians (under its control) and laying down arms”.

Pointing out that the LTTE was an outlawed group in India, the minister added that it “has done much damage to the Tamil community”.

The Indian government, he added, “is ready to facilitate the evacuation of civilians trapped in the area of conflict, working with the government of Sri Lanka and the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross)”.

duzz said...

got this from e mail

"using one of my spy accounts with a tamil name, I managed to grab a piece of very important news from a Pro-LTTE group.
They are planning to use fake Sinhala accounts to add Sinhala Girls with profile pics as friends, and use such photographs to create presentations or videos tagging Sinhala Girls as prostitutes and School Girls as child prostitutes, after which they would be posted in video sharing sites such as Youtube, or free web hosting sites.They have already created hundreds of such sites and Pictures of Sinhala Girls stolen from either facebook or hi5, School Girls in some cases, are brandished as prostitutes with price tags below pictures.
This is a very serious issue.If this continues with us unaware,Thousands of innocent Sinhala Girls living in and out of Sri Lanka will be victimised, their characters, family lives, careers and even education would be jeopardised.
Tiger bastards would lean to any dirty extent, bestowed with frustration.They will not spare even children. I`ve seen pics of Smiling innocent School Girls, some not more than age 12, 13 as they appear, carded as prostitutes in some of these blog spots tiger supporters have created, pictures stolen from social websites like facebook no doubts.

PLEASE INFORM YOUR RESPECTIVE GROUP MEMBERSHIP REGARDING THIS..AND SPECIALLY YOUR LOVED ONES IF THEY HAVE PROFILES IN EITHER FB OR HI5..ASK THEM TO BE EXTRA PRECAUCIOUS..WARN THEM NOT TO ADD UNKNOWN OR SUSPICIOUS LOOKING PROFILES..

THEY ARE GOING TO LAUNCH A HUGE CYBER CAMPAIGN TO TARNISH OUR NATIONAL IMAGE NEXT WEEK..IN PAR TO THAT THEY WILL TRY TO STEAL AS MANY PICS AS POSSIBLE..PLEASE WARN EVERYBODY.."
