[TamilNet, Tuesday, 09 November 1999, 18:32 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers are consolidating areas recently captured from the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) whilst pressing on with their offensive in other areas, said sources close to the LTTE in Europe today.

The Tigers are sweeping for SLA mines and unexploded ordnance, the sources said.

A large stretch of territory from the Mankulam-Mullaitivu road to the Puliyankulam area was captured by the LTTE in the past week.

Meanwhile LTTE forces are today advancing on Panikaineeravi, 3 km. south of Puliyankulam, the sources said.

Elsewhere, in the Manal Aru (Weli Oye) area, LTTE fighters have overrun six SLA camps including Thanikkal, Kent Farm, Ceylon Theatre, the sources said.

The sources said 120 LTTE fighters, including 44 women have died since the Tigers launched operation 'Unceasing Waves 3' last Tuesday.

The offensive is continuing, the sources said.
