The defence ministry yesterday said the army breached the heavily fortified LTTE defence lines in several locations North of Akkarayankulam and North of Iranaimadu taking the battles into the ‘terrorist den’ of Kilinochchi.


“Fighting broke out between troops and LTTE at the fringes of the Kilinochchi build-up, and the military confirmed severe losses to LTTE during the confrontations,” the ministry said.


The LTTE has lost their dominance over the earth bund and the trench surrounding Kilinochchi following days of heavy fighting with security forces.


The Kilinochchi battlefront is now more tense. Some of the fighting elements of the 57 Division entering the Kilinochchi build-up  are engaging the LTTE their hideouts.
