Six soldiers killed in Thoppigala

@ LL /Saturday, July 07, 2007

Six soldiers including one high ranking officer were killed and seven injured when Tigers launched an attack on advancing troops in Thoppigala yesterday morning, hours before Air Force jets bombed Thoppigala and Mannar LTTE targets, the military said.

The five soldiers and their commanding officer were killed when Tigers fired Multi-Barrel Rocket Launchers at the troops in a bid to save their last bastion in the east, a senior military official told. Following the killings, the Air Force carried out three air strikes on identified LTTE targets in Thoppigala and Mannar yesterday morning

“The Air strikes were in support of infantry Troops engaged in humanitarian operations in the Thoppigala area,” a senior air force official said.
