Adampan falls to Security Forces

The last village in Adampan under LTTE control fell to the Security Forces following heavy fighting in the Wanni last morning. The Security Forces destroyed 16 Tiger bunkers and killed 22 LTTE cadres in two separate confrontations.

Military Spokesman Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara said troops of advancing Brigade-56 to liberate Mannar from the LTTE clutches marched towards west of Adampan and captured the last village of Vaiyattamkulam which was the last village under LTTE control in the Adampan area.

"Vaiyattamkulam was located 1km towards the west of Adampan and the Security Forces destroyed 10 LTTE bunkers while killing 10 Tiger cadres," he added.

He said the fight lasted for two hours and the Security Forces successfully retaliated the LTTE resistance forcing them to flee the area.

In another confrontation, the Security Forces completely destroyed six Tiger bunkers and killed 12 LTTE cadres, south of Pallekuli, Mannar yesterday morning.

According to Brigadier Nanayakkara, the Security Forces smashed the LTTE bunkers located in the South of Pallekuli and overran six LTTE bunkers yesterday morning. “LTTE communication intercepts revealed that the Tigers lost 12 of their cadres,” he added.

Troops recovered five bodies of LTTE cadres and a T56 assault riffle, three claymore mines, 70 60mm ammunition and a large stock of T56 ammunition.
