Army captures last sea tiger base in Chalai and clears entire Visuamadu area

Troops of 55th Devision headed by Brig. Prasanna Silva totally shattered the power of the sea tigers by taking complete control of Chalai today (Feb 5) evening.

Meanwhile, Task Force 3 and the 57th and 58th Divisions captured the entire Vishwamadu area in Mullaittivu.

The forces approached the defence line and advanced towards Puthukudiyiruppu. The forces advancing from the North captured Chalai, the largest sea tiger base. It is believed to be larger than the sea tiger base in Mullaitivu. The forces have also captured several sea tiger camps in the West and North.
