57 division units operating south of Iranamadu today overran the strategic Terumurikandy junction. Fierce fighting has been raging in this area since yesterday (10th) where the tigers resisted the army advance for hours. 57 division units suffered casualties while trying to overrun the LTTE built earth bund yesterday with over 20 soldiers being killed and around 60 more being injured. LTTE were able to capture 12 bodies of SLA soldiers fallen in yesterday’s battle.
However, 57 division units who fought relentlessly despite casualties, overran the Terumurikandy junction today (11th) afternoon. Experienced LTTE fighters manning this bunker line withdrew toward Iranamadu, unable to resist the two pronged attacked launched by the SI formations. LTTE casualty details are not available as of this moment. Clearing ops are still continuing in the area.
