Kebitigollawe attack, senseless violence used for political ends - LTTE

[TamilNet, Thursday, 15 June 2006, 06:34 GMT]
The Claymore attack on Sinhala civilians in Kebitigollawe Thursday morning was "senseless violence used for political ends," the Liberation Tigers condemning the attack said in press release issued from Kilinochchi. Armed acts targeting civilians "cannot be justified under any circumstances," the press release said and charged Sri Lankan armed elements who have intensified their attacks on Tamil civilians for political ends, have also begun targeting Sinhala civilians with the aim of blaming the Tigers. The LTTE has urged the International media "not to fall prey for the reprehensible propaganda tactic."

"The attack in Kebitigollawe timed to occur immediately after the arrival of the LTTE delegation from Europe is a reprehensible act of murders with the sole aim of blaming the LTTE for the attack," the LTTE Press release said.

Since Geneva talks in February 250 civilians including 24 children have been murdered by GoSL operative forces in the NorthEast, the press release said.

Colombo "has now spread its tactic of using civilian life for political end beyond the Northeast," the LTTE press release added.
