The LTTE continued mounting heavy artillery and mortar attacks from the No Fire Zone (NFZ) at the 53 Division troops advancing towards the general area of Vellamullivaikkal on Friday (April 17), says the Defence Ministry. According to ground military sources, terrorists manning the forward defences were caught in total disarray with numbers reported fleeing towards civilian populated patches avoiding direct confrontation. At least eight terrorists were killed and nine others reported injured during the initial confrontations, the military confirmed citing intercepted LTTE communication. Also, terrorists were reported arguing with their rear assault groups for delaying reinforcements to stall the advancing Army troops.
