Vidattaltivu Liberated; terrorists suffer fatal blow
soldiers of Army 58 Division and Commando Brigade have liberated the
strategically important Vidattaltivu town this morning (July 16), said
the defence sources in the Mannar warfront.
According to defence sources, Vidattaltivu
is the biggest town situated on the North- Western coast of the Island,
20 km North of Mannar and is the main Sea-Tiger base cum the logistic
hub of the LTTE in the West. This is the first time after the departure
of Indian Peace Keeping Force in 1990 that troops have dominated the
area , the sources added.
Defence observers are in the view that the loss
of Vidattaltivu would cast a fatal blow on LTTE as it has lost the most
important Sea-Tiger base in the present context. According to them the
terrorists have no other option than to shift their Sea-Tiger assets to a
makeshift camp further Northwards with the loss of its well-established
sea borne operation base.
