Infantry formations of the 59 division have entered Alampil area where a major sea tiger base is located. Alampil is located around 10km south east of Mullathivu town. As of now this area is practically surrounded with SLA units moving in from north and north west of the town. To the south and south west of Alampil lies the Nayaru lagoon and to the east is the sea. LTTE base located in this area plays a major role in LTTE operations in Mullaithivu district not only because this is a known sea tiger launching pad but it also is a major logistics hub of the tigers. Anyway supply line from Alampil to Mullaithiv has now been cut off by the 59-1 brigade.
Meanwhile infantry units of the 57 division demolished an LTTE boat in the Iranamadu lake last evening (3rd). The boat with an unknown number of LTTE cadres on board, was close to the tank’s southern bank when it met its doom.
