up dated info-

SFs are fighting an intensive offensive to breach the tiger FDLs around the Pulipainthakal, Kudimbimalai and ahead of Ibban ville regions. Yesterday Tigers got heavy loses along their  elastic defence line, which runs from Pallamadu to Mavadi Odai sectors.

Teams of 8 and 10 man sf groups (under the command of 53 regiment and JOC) combing deep in the Thoppigala jungle. There are no civilians. Just a pure game of death. Tigers already have deployed their elite Jeyanthan brigade to counter strike our SF guys. So,,,,, game is still on the way.

This is fantastic first hand news. Keep it up without spilling any confidential info. Three cheers for our brave men. Hope the tigers realize the situation and surrender without destroying unnecessary life in both sides. They (tigers) are our brothers after all. We got to live with them when this madness is over, like we have done for many millennia.

I never think war as a game. It is the final settlement of disputes when all negotiations fail. We should pursue it only when all other avenues are tried and confirmed closed.

Thoppigala

here below,, a isolated view of well noted Thoppigala .

related info:-

The aeras in the west of Batticaloa provided key cadre recruitment and financial plus material income sources to the Tiger organization and considered as a "unbreakablE" tiger base.

 Despite being widely known as  "thoppigala", this area does not covers only the Thoppigala rock pile ( Kudimbimalai in tamil and baron's cap in English) alone. But Vadamunai, Unichchai, Karadiyanaru and Maha oya north regions as well.

There are well noted tiger base complexes ( a base complex means a precise network of number of camps) like Thravaikulam, Karadiyanaru and infamouse "beirut base".

The Tiger organization has divided the areas into “kottams” or admin cum military zones. At one time it had four “Kottams” under it in Batticaloa - Ampara (digamadulla).The Ampara district areas were known as Udumbankulam Kottam; The Vaakarai - Verugal areas were known as Aandaankulam Kottam; the areas of Tharavaikulam - Kudumbimalai -Vadamunai(Thoppigala) extending down to Karadiyanaaru were known as Kudumbimalai Kottam; The Kokkadicholai - Vellaveli areas in Paduvaankarai were known as Maavadimunmaari Kottam.

Virtually, tigers were able to maintain certain type of de-facto state at the Kokkadicholai with tiger police, courts and with other civil istitutions and , it is still a strong hot bed of the organization.

Currently the Aandaankulam Kottam has been taken over by the military after a prolonged counter guerilla campaign.. The Udumbankulam Kottam was taken by the elite Special Task Force (STF) in a few days as the tigers simply abandoned their camps. Now the tigers are left with only two Kottams in Batticaloa namely Kudumbimalai and Maavadimunmaari . Comparatively Maavadimunmaari is more densely populated and supplies much food and resources to tiger cadres. But the Kudumbimalai Kottam (beirut base+tharavai base +4-9base) is militarily stronger. Within this Kottam amongst other things is the military headquarters “Meenaham” in Tharavai and the political headquarters “Thenagham” in Karadiyanaaru. Moreover tigers are still maintaining some of their "heavy pieces" (means the artillery) at key points nearby  these bases.

Hi Uhox,

I was under the impression that once Toppigala complex is over run all East is within government control. Your post creates some doubts regarding Kokkadicholai? Is it in the Northern front or in Eastern front?

First, let me congratulate with our heroic troops, who captured the Thoppigala base complex, including Tora-bora camp and the Beirut base. Our troops did great work and,  let us concern on the second stage, which may be  more complicate.

In a prolonged Guerrilla war, the abandoning  of enemy  positions does not means the complete victory of the occupying army. But , if there will be many guerrilla casualties and capture of their (guerrillas’) fire power, it can be considered as a countable strategic victory. So SLA have to concern on this.. When our SLA forces attack they should round off the LTTE camps and disallow tiger cadres from escaping. Tigers successfully did this  tactic in Mulativu, Pooneryn and to some extent in Elephant pass by killing more than 1500 of our troops and capturing the giant haul of arms. So why our guys can do the same?

And not only, the Govt must launch an eminent resettlement  programme in this area  respecting racial demographical equations (so-called RDE) . It must be planned carefully and executed without delay. For example Govt must re-think  about the Mahaweli B system project. (Which has been Master minded by two great politicians, Mr Athulathmudali and Mr Disanayake , with a group of able officials)

About two decades ago, the Kudimbimalai kottam was spotted with the many purana Sinhala villages, like Kithulwewa, Miyankolla and Vadamune, but later ethnically cleaned by the Tamil racists. There were many other isolated small sinhala settlements bordering to Polonnaruwa district, the names of which elude me now.

The Tharavai hinterland is covered with the shurb jungles. The name “Tharavai, in Tamil refers to land that is saline and not adequate for cultivations.  The Kudimbimalai, Nelu gala and wehibendi gala area  is doted with many eventual rock outcrops  and  Vadamune (vadamunai-in Tamil) is covered with the dense jungles. The Northern and western sides of the region is bordered by the Maduru oya river and eastern side is flanked to the Vavunativu lagoon (Valichchenai-Vakaneri) with its deadly swamps. Geographically, a perfect region for a protracted guerrilla war.

The number of the tiger cadres yet engaged at Thoppigala front, is difficult to quantify. The cadre influx through the noted Beirut trail is still continuing. And in a prolonged war situation, the basics also depend on tigers ability to establish the fall-back positions and regrouping areas, from where they can continue their guerrilla attacks. Tigers are masters of the guerrilla war.  Unlike in Vakarai and Sampoor, the Thoppigala southern  and eastern sectors and Kokkadicholai heart lands are inter linked and continually being backed up by a large Tamil population living in Batticaloa town, Vellaveli and in Vavunativu regions. So the Thoppigala front may be the most intense counter-guerrilla campaign SLA have ever been to.

Weli----- regarding your question about the Kokakadicholai

Hope you'd  have got a clear geographical note by the Map given by Cleo.

Anyway It seems like that SLA just bypassed  the Kokkadicholai. There are some tiger pockets still keeping their fall back sites around the Kokkadicholai (like pulukunavai). Practically , It is very difficult to track and eliminate the moving enemy in the remote jungle tracks. But hope our SF guys will handle this issue very well. :)
