Security forces personnel operating in Mannar front made another major breakthrough capturing LTTE's stronghold in Parappakkadanthan, 4Km north of Giant Tank, in Mannar front this noon, June 28.
According to the military sources, a firing rang used by the LTTE terrorists, probably for training requirements, also found in a search operation conducted in the 2 square Km area captured by the troops. Meanwhile, several tombs erected for terror cadres killed in past gun battles were also found in general area Alkaddiveli, between Andankulam and Parappakkadanthan.
The village of PARRAPPAKADANTHAN, situated NORTH of GIANT'S TANK is a developed area consisting of many buildings and a large terrorist training complex including a firing range, the hideout of the LTTE leader "BHANU" and a terrorist cemetery.

These areas were under LTTE clutches for more than two decades and it clearly shows the inability of LTTE terrorists to face security forces who are continuously marching towards LTTE strongholds in multi-pronged offensive launched to liberate the Wanni.
Troops are now consolidating their positions in the area.
