8 days, 35 explosions, SLA suffers casualties in Mannaar: LTTE

[TamilNet, Thursday, 13 March 2008, 16:03 GMT]
Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Operations Command Mannaar on Wednesday said that 35 Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troops have been either wounded or killed in booby trap explosions in no-go zones between the LTTE and SLA FDLs in Mannaar from 02 March to 10 March in 35 separate incidents. Members of SLA Deep Penetration Units (DPU) and troops deployed in attempts to break into LTTE FDLs are the ones who were caught in Tiger booby traps according to the LTTE.

13 SLA soldiers in Muílílikkuílam, 8 in Pa'ndivirichchaan, 9 in Koayilkuílam and 5 in Valaiyankaddu have either been killed or injured in eight days.

This number is more than the number of SLA troops killed or seriously injured last week.

There had been a large number of similar incidents Tuesday in Pa'ndivirichchaan and Mu'l'likku'lam no-go zones in Mannaar.
