Troops dominate another LTTE built-up - Kilinochchi

Troops of Task Force 1 operating in the western half of the Kilinochchi front have dominated another LTTE strong point, Palavi built-up area, reaching to a significant phase of the Wanni liberation offensive last evening, 10 November.

Troops advanced towards Pooneryn from west of A-32 main road and have gained total control over the Palavi built-up area located 8Km northeast of Veravil and 6 1/2 Km west of A-32 main road, defence sources said.

Dominating the Palavi built-up is strategically vital as this will cut-off the LTTE's main access route running parallel to the western coastal border from Veravil to Chempankundu.

Troops are now consolidating defences in the area. Defence.lk
