LTTE armour plated truck destroyed

Sunday, February 08, 2009

Sri Lanka Army 14 Gajaba Regiment and Armoured Corps soldiers operating at the 59 Division frontline attacked an armour plated truck and destroyed it in front of the Pudukuduyirippu army defence line yesterday the Military said.

According to the battlefield sources, the LTTE attempted to breach the army forward boundary south of Puthukkudiyiruppu junction using a similar tactic used by the army mechanised infantry. According to same sources, about 25 LTTE cadres were inside the truck.

β€œAn armour plated Ashok Leyland truck came towards the defence line from the Pudukuduyirippu-Oddusudan Road around 2:30p.m. Battle tank salvos and RPG attacks destroyed the truck and 10 bodies are lying around the truck while 15 others are inside the truck,” the Army spokesman said.
