JAFFNA: The Army successfully repulsed an attack at Nagarkovil, Jaffna yesterday and refuted a pro-LTTE Tamil Net Website datelined May 31, where the actual position regarding the firing incident at Nagarkovil Forward Defence Line (FDL) has been distorted to the advantaged of the LTTE.

The Army statement:- LTTE terrorists early last morning once again started firing mortars and small arms towards the troops at the FDL at Nagarkovil, Jaffna forcing government troops to retaliate with small arms and mortars.

The terrorist firing lasted for about 45 minutes and terrorists in the opposite FDL afterwards retreated in the face of retaliatory fire, directed by the Security Forces.

Troops maintained their original position at the FDL and no such withdrawal, as fabricated in the story did take place at Nagarkovil following the exchange of fire. Nor have the terrorists, as alleged in the same story, advanced towards the FDL, of the Government Forces after firing at them.

The Army while totally denying to contents of the report further states that there were no injuries to troops in the enemy firing.
