Now entire Parappakandal with the Troops

MANNAR: PARAPPAKANDAL, one of the major town suburb to the north of UYILANKULAM was completely brought under the troops this morning (6), giving another severe setback and humiliation to the Tiger terrorists who had kept the whole area under siege.

Troops earlier had the control over south of PARAPPAKANDAL for a long time but the north of PARAPPAKANDAL and its surrounding areas were infested with Tiger terrorists who have been resisting fiercely the forward march of the troops for some months.

Today’s capture of the whole of PARAPPAKANDAL marks a turning point since the area has been of strategic importance to the troops.

Troops are consolidating their position.

Casualties are yet to be reported.
