LTTE fighters have advanced 3kms into SLA-held territory and are poised to attack SLA bases complexes at Kilali and Eluthumadduval, the statement said, adding nine Tigers have also been killed.

The full text of the press release follow:

“One hundred and fifty Sri Lankan troops have been killed and more than 500 injured in the heavy fighting that flared up yesterday evening and continued throughout the day today in the Muhamalai-Killali sector of the southernmost army defences in the Jaffna peninsula.

“LTTE combat formations supported by heavy artillery and mortar fire launched a massive offensive operation code-named ‘Unceasing Waves 4’ yesterday evening around 4p.m in the Killali-Muhamalai-Nagar Kovil axis of the southern Jaffna peninsula about 20 kilometres from Elephant Pass. In a six- frontal offensive assault the Tamil Tiger commando units over-ran hundreds of army defence bunkers and several mini-camps along the well-fortified military perimeter.

“After intense fighting that continued throughout the day the LTTE forces have advanced 3 kilometres from their original position and are now poised to launch an attack on the Eluthumadduval military complex and Killali naval base. The vital supply lines to troops stationed at Nagar-Kovil have been cut off.

“Since the outbreak of the fighting 150 Sri Lankan soldiers have been killed and more than 500 injured. According to reports received from the battlefield heavy fighting continues in the sector. Nine LTTE fighters have been killed in the combat."
