Wanni LTTE sources have indicated that SLA advances have been stalled in all fronts. There have been no new SLA thrusts apart from sporadic skirmishes in the past two days. This can be also be corroborated by the fact that all pro GoSL sites have been silent on battle field news. Political sources have indicated that both GoSL and the opposition are begging for the visit of Pranab Mukherjee as GoSL is rumoured to want a ceasefire due to soaring casualties, low morale and spiralling defence costs. The calls for a ceasefire comes amidst CJ's judgement on oil prices and the oil hedge gone wrong which is crippling the Sri Lankan economy.
Meanwhile SLAF fighter jets have once again attacked an IDP camp. The SLAF justifies these attacks by claiming that LTTE units are hiding in among civilians, sources have indicated to this blog owner that this claim is completely unfounded.
Will aim to provide more battlefield news in a few days.
