Paramilitary attack repulsed in Batticaloa - LTTE

[TamilNet, Saturday, 30 December 2006, 07:13 GMT]
Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) launched a counter-attack on a group of paramilitary cadres of Karuna Group, Friday night, when the group attempted to launch a penetration attack on a LTTE camp in Kudumbimalai, northwest of Batticaloa. A wounded paramilitary cadre was captured alive and the dead body of another was recovered by the Tigers, according to the Military Spokesman of the Tigers Irasiah Ilanthirayan. Four Tiger fighters were wounded in the confrontation. Kudumbimalai, a hat shaped hill, is located in the middle of the large Vadamunai-Tharavai region, northwest of Batticaloa.

The paramilitary had entered the LTTE territory to launch an attack on a LTTE camp, while the Sri Lanka Army was providing field artillery support.

LTTE fighters were chasing the paramilitary cadres in the jungles of the region, the Tiger spokesman added.
