Famous LTTE’s “Lima Base – 3” Falls on Troops

MAKING FURTHER STRIDES in the war for liberation of the masses under terrorist grip, troops of the Sri Lanka Army in another pre-dawn attack on Monday (21) on the so-called LTTE’s “Lima Base – 3”, East of KATTANKULAM, MANNAR eliminated seven terrorists and brought a stretch of about 1300 meters under troop control.

The troops’ sudden roll on to the LTTE’s stronghold at about 4.35 a.m. took the enemy by surprise and panicking terrorists went on directing fire on advancing troops.

Four valiant soldiers received wounds in the enemy fire.

The fall of the LTTE’s famous “Lima Base – 3” in MANNAR comes in the wake of a string of military setbacks to the LTTE in the area where at least 13 Tiger terrorists died on Sunday (20) during clashes with the troops in KATTANKULAM, VEDDAYAPIRU, VEDDAYAMPURAMKULAM, ADAMPAN and MALIKATTIDAL areas.

Those clashes included sniping and heavy machine gun firing. Troops also recovered 91 anti personnel mines and 3 booby traps from those areas while conducting de-mining work.
