Army Chief reviews progress on Wanni fronts

Enthusiastic about the gains made by troops advancing in the Wanni front, Army Commander Lieutenant General Sarath Fonseka who visited the Security Forces Headquarters in Wanni (SFHQ-W) yesterday morning, reviewed the status quo in relation to ongoing operations against terrorism.

The Army Chief during his interaction with senior ground Commanders at the SFHQ-W, exchanged views and received a comprehensive account of ground realities in Welioya, Kilinochchi and Mullaittivu fronts.

Review of military gains achieved by his troops, consolidation of troop positions, search and clearing operations with parallel de-mining work in progress, coordination work of the troops, conduct of offensives, assessment of LTTE resistance and enemy strategies and conduct of future military operations were among issues taken up during the Wanni meeting, attended by Major General Jagath Jayasuriya, Commander, SFHQ-W and a few accompanying senior officers, flown from the Army Headquarters.

SFHQ-W Commander and other Commanders of Divisions and Brigades briefed the Army Commander on security developments in respective areas and sought his instructions to carry out their duties further.

The Army Commander contended with multi-pronged ongoing military offensives as Tiger strongholds in Kilinochchi and Mullaittvu districts fall one after the other, wanted his troops to further seal any possible routes for infiltration of terrorists into captured and dominating areas.
