Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Thursday morning launched artillery attacks towards Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) controlled Verugal, 14 km northwest of Vaharai and 27 km southeast of SLA captured Sampoor. Meanwhile, SLA troops that moved 5 km inside LTTE territory into Kattumurivu, southwest of Vaharai, have stationed in a school, following stiff LTTE resistance.

Heavy fighting ensued between SLA troops and LTTE fighters at Eachilampattu, 6 km north of Verugal, amid heavy artillery fire from SLA positions, according to LTTE Military Spokesman Irasiah Ilanthiryan.
