Elilan warns of retaliatory attack

[TamilNet, Monday, 08 May 2006, 08:46 GMT]
"We would be forced to attack the Kaddaiparichchan camp of the Sri Lanka Army if the paramilitaries and government troops continue their attack on LTTE forward defense line in Kaddaiparichchan," Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Monday informed the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in the east port town, LTTE sources in Sampoor said.

Mr.Elilan Sunday evening around 7 p.m. brought to the notice of the SLMM that paramilitaries had been brought down to Kaddaiparichchan SLA camp to launch an attack on LTTE camp. But the SLMM failed to take any steps to look into the complaint. About three hours later paramilitaries in connivance with the SLA troops launched their attack on LTTE forward defense line in Kaddaiparichchan. However the LTTE successfully repulsed the attack. Paramilitaries and government troops had fled to the Kaddaiparichchan army camp leaving their weapons at the scene of attack, LTTE sources said.

Mr.Elilan has now informed the SLMM that LTTE would be forced to attack the Kaddaiparichchan army camp if paramilitaries with government troops launch fresh attack on them, LTTE sources said.

Meanwhile, another attack launched by government troops and paramilitaries on Sunday night around 11.30 p.m. on a LTTE sentry in Ralkuli village was also repulsed by LTTE. Ralkuli is located in the LTTE held territory, LTTE sources said.

SLMM monitors visited Kaddaiparichchan and Ralkuli following the complaint by the LTTE that their forward defense lines were attacked by paramilitaries with government troops Sunday night, sources said.
