Sri Lankan attacks violate CFA, SLMM officials agree with LTTE in Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 June 2006, 04:15 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) officials in Trincomalee have explained to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) officials in the district that the aerial bombing and artillery fire, carried out by the Sri Lankan armed forces towards the LTTE controlled territory were considered "clear violations" of the ceasefire agreement, S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head of the LTTE, told media Friday after concluding a meeting with Ove Jensen, Trincomalee district head of the SLMM.

"The SLMM Trincomalee head agreed with me that the so-called retaliatory military attacks on our territory were cear violations of the ceasefire," LTTE's Trincomalee district political head said.

Three civilians were wounded and at least 10 civilian houses were damaged in the multi-barrel artillery attack that took place Thursday, according to Mr. Elilan.

The discussion with the SLMM officials was held at the Trincomalee district LTTE political secretariat located in Sampoor in the Muttur east.

Elilan said he pointed out to the SLMM Trincomalee head that the LTTE has severely condemned the Kebbitigollawa killings as senseless violence used for political ends.

"Indiscriminate acts of violence targeting civilians cannot be justified under any circumstances," Elilan said.

The SLMM monitors led by Ove Jensen inspected the civilian houses destroyed by SLA's multi-barrel artillery fire in LTTE controlled areas in Muttur East Friday morning.

Again, on Friday evening, the SLA troopers launched artillery fire on the villages located in the LTTE held Muttur east.
