Sri Lankan offensive in Amparai - LTTE

[TamilNet, Thursday, 12 October 2006, 12:26 GMT]
Sri Lankan Special Task Force (STF) troopers launched a pre-dawn offensive into Liberation Tigers territory in Amparai Thursday. "The STF ground troopes have moved in 6 km into our territory inside Kanchikudicharu," said LTTE Amparai District Political Head S. Jeya. STF was continuing to target villages in the area surrounding Kanchikudichcharu with artilery shelling from Thirukkovil, Sahama, Kanjirankudah camps and Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers were also targeting the villages, Mr. Jeya said.

The Liberation Tigers fighters were engaged in defensive clashes with the STF troopers, according to the Tiger political head of Amparai district.

Kanchikudicharu villagers have fled inwards into other villages via Santhanaru.

Some civilian houses have been burnt down by the STF troopers who advanced into Kanchikudicharu, the Tigers said.

LTTE Amparai District political head has complained to the SLMM stating that the STF offensive was a major violation of the CFA.
