SLAF flies spy missions over LTTE controlled areas in Amparai

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 24 May 2006, 10:50 GMT]
Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Amparai political head Mr. Jeya registered a complaint Wednesday with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) against the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) for employing low flying aircrafts in reconnaisance missions over LTTE territory in Amparai district, LTTE sources said. An aircraft was seen circling over Wednesday from 10 a.m to 12.00 p.m, said LTTE sources in Amparai.

The plane has circled the LTTE controlled Kanjirankudah area and all jungle areas from Vattamadu in Akkaraipatru to Pottuvil, civilian sources said.

The plane was seen returning in the direction of Galle, civilian sources said.

The Sri Lanka government (GoSL) and its armed forces are continuously provoking the Liberation TIgers aimed at disrupting the peace process. The SLAF aircraft spying on our territory today is a serious violation of the CFA, said Jeya in his complaint.

This is the first time a Sri Lankan spy-plane was observed on reconnaisance mission over Amparai district.

Tamil civilians complained that the Special Task Forc (STF) troopers, the counter insurgency arm of the lankan forces, have threatened the civilians of aerial bombardment.
