The SLA troopers withdrew after facing resistance from the Tigers, according to LTTE's Military Spokesman Irasiah Ilanthirayan.

Artillery and mortar fire was also reported in Northern Front FDL in Muhamalai since Sunday evening.

Five children, including a 6 month-old baby and a 18-months-old baby girl, were among the seven patients in the ambulance, medical sources added.
