Under sin tale ved en ceremoni i Anuradhapura, sagde Sri Lankas hær chef, Lt Gen Sarath Fonseka at 80 % af de Tamilske Tigre allerede er nedkæmpet af militæret. Den omstændighed, at LTTE nu mangler veluddannet personale de kan sende til fronten, er vi blevet vidne til i de seneste uger, sagde han. Hæren chefen lovede endnu engang at indtage byen Kilinochchi så hurtigt som muligt. Lt Gen Fonseka sagde, at 12.000 LTTE soldater er blevet dræbt i kampe på jorden og at yderligere 1000 LTTE medlemmer er blevet dræbt i luft-angreb. “Mindst 7000-8000 kan være blevet såret eller handicappede i denne periode,” sagde han. I et interview med avisen, ”Sunday Times” i december 2007, sagde Gen Fonseka at der kun var 3.000 medlemmer tilbage i LTTE. Selv om han ikke ønskede at fastlægge tidsfrister for at nedkæmpe LTTE, sagde Gen Fonseka, at det er hans ambition at afslutte krigen mod De Tamilske Tigre i løbet af sin embedsperiode.
