Troops to take full control of A9
Fierce fighting East of Kilinochchi
The Security Forces of the 53 Division and 55
Division fast advancing from the Kilali and Muhamalai defence lines
are poised to capture the remaining part of the A-9 road to link up
with the troops South of Elephant Pass within the next 48 hours,
Army Commander Lt. General Sarath Fonseka said yesterday.
World must support Govt to end LTTE propaganda overseas -
The international community should be more
supportive to the Government of Sri Lanka to end LTTE propaganda
overseas and pressurise the LTTE to release civilians from conflict
areas after the ban on the LTTE in Sri Lanka.
Mullaitivu increasingly coming under threat of troops
The fall of Kilinochchi, the de-facto capital of
the LTTE at the hands of the 57 and 58 Divisions presented two
options before Tiger leader Velupillai Prabhakaran.
