SLAF MiG27 fighter jets pounded newly established LTTE positions in Vauniya region throughout the day. LTTE retook some 6square kms of territory which the army captured from them earlier this month, after a fierce battle. Tigers were also able to capture 1 SLA Buffel Armoured Personnel Carrier and a small amount of low-medium calibre weapons.
SLAF MiG 27 fighter jets ran no less than 5 sorties during the day targeting newly established LTTE defences. Heavy barrages of MBRL rocket fire were also directed at LTTE positions. However, damages caused by these remote attacks are yet to be verified.
SLAF UAVs could be observed in the skies over Vauniya during the day.
