Sri Lanka Air Force fighter jets bombed the LTTE's military headquarter complex in Kilinochchi this afternoon (Oct 2), Air Force spokesperson Wing Commander Janaka Nanayakkara said. Fighter jets launched from Katunayake carried out the air strike at 12.40 PM targeting the LTTE headquarter located 2 km northeast of Kilinochchi town, he added.
Meanwhile, defence intelligence sources revealed that the target was engaged on real time ground intelligence on a meeting of senior LTTE cadres at the location. The LTTE has maintained the targeted camp complex as its main military coordinating centre, the sources added. Elaborating further on the air strike, the sources said that the targeted camp is situated at Paravipanjan in Kilinochchi.
According to the Air Fore spokesman the target was accurately engaged. However, the exact damage caused to the terrorist has not been verified yet, he said.
Defence observers say that the recent string of air strikes on LTTE nerve centers located in the heart of Kilinochchi would soon create a huge problem for LTTE in maintaining the outfit under a centralized command and control mechanism.
