Tigers confirm twin attacks

[TamilNet, Friday, 17 April 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers told the TamilNet's Vadamaradchi correspondent who met them this morning at Naagarkovil that one of their attack groups had fired mortar shells last night around 7.30 p.m. on the SLA camp at Vaalaithottam in Varani in the Vadamaradchi sector of the Jaffna peninsula killing more than three soldiers and wounding several others.

Residents in the area, meanwhile, reported that the SLA had retaliated to this by shelling LTTE areas ahead of their positions until 9.30 p.m.

The Liberation Tigers at Nagakovil also told the TamilNet's Vadamaradchi correspondent that more than five SLA soldiers were killed when they had attacked the SLA's FDL's in Mirusuvil last night at 7.55 p.m.

They said they had not sustained any casualties in this attack and that they had recovered weapons from the SLA.

However, according to them, details of the weapons captured from the SLA are not yet available as the commander of the LTTE group that had carried out the attack on the Mirusuvil FDL has not returned to base.

Sources said that this FDL is located at Eluvaan between Chuttipuram and Varani.
