Kilinochchi Has Fallen – Now under Sri Lanka Army control

Jan 2nd, 2009

[ad#200×200]The 57 Division and the Task Force 1 of Sri Lanka Army today (Jan 2) scored the greatest victory in their noble battle against terrorism by liberating the Kilinochchi town and Kilinochchi Train Station, the so-called administrative hub of the LTTE terrorists. The town of Kilinochchi is being cleared house to house.

Troops of 57 Division lead by Major General Jagath Dias have entered into the highly defended terrorists stronghold from the South and Southwestern boundaries while the Task Force 1 troops lead by Brigadier Shavendra Silva have marched in from the North and Northwest.

Kilinochchi, though not very strategically located in terms of military maneuvers, has been given a great symbolic importance by the LTTE terrorists as their administrative “capital”. In fact, the LTTE propaganda elements used to call the town as their de facto capital of the utopian state of “Eelam”. However , Sri Lanka government has been running all civil administrative affairs in the area, including bank and finance, education, health, trade and welfare.

Meanwhile 35 Ratha Regiment elite Tigers were killed when they clashed with a Brigade from the 59 Division near the town of Oddusudan yesterday.
