LTTE commandos rescue stranded cadres
A number of LTTE regular cadres were stranded between the Muhamalai / Kilali defence lines and the EPS complex due to the advancing SLA infantry units. A sudden breakdown in communications meant that the cadres were not able to withdraw timely in line with the orders. The tactical withdrawal from the national front was in line with the plan devised by the LTTE military panel. Military and Human Rights conventions allow for the safe withdrawal of combatants in the face of enemy advances, however, the SLA did not adhere to these conventions and indiscriminately fired on the withdrawing guerrillas. A reliable source has informed this blog owner that an elite commando regiment and a sea tiger rescue vessel was sent into bring back the trapped cadres. Braving heavy enemy fire, the commando regiment and the vessel managed to sneak through enemy defences and bring back all the trapped cadres safely back to LTTE administered areas. The blog owner is of the opinion that this is one of the most daring commando missions successfully executed in recent times, and the LTTE high command has decided to confer the highest military honours on the rescue teams as commendations for the extreme bravery displayed.
