LTTE will be forced to retaliate, Thamilchelvan warns Colombo

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 June 2006, 09:54 GMT]
The LTTE has requested the Head of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) and the peace facilitor Norway's Ambassador to Sri Lanka to convey a strong warning to Colombo of possible retaliation following the provocative aerial bombing by the Sri Lankan Air Force (SLAF) in Mullaithivu, Kilinochchi, Batticaloa, and artillery fire towards LTTE territory from Sri Lanka Army (SLA) camps carried out during the last 2 days in violation of the Ceasefire Agreement (CFA), LTTE Head of Political Wing, S.P. Thamilchelvan said in Kilinochchi Saturday.

The LTTE Political Head also condemned the hastily issued statements by some countries, without understanding the complex issues on the ground, accusing the LTTE for the Kebitigollawa attack.

"We categorically deny the accusation that the Tigers attacked the civilian passenger bus in Kebittigollawa. "The Tigers were not behind the Claymore attack," he stated.

"I repeat, the Tigers were not behind this brutal act."

"We are aware of the forces attempting to marginalise the Liberation Tigers further from the International Community. They [the forces opposed to peace engagement] have designed the terror attack on civilians to further inflame the situation, and precipitate a full outbreak of war" charged LTTE's Political Head.

"Faulting the Tigers for Colombo's failure to act responsibly in Oslo, and using the post EU-proscription scenario as an advantage affecting the parity of status would only lead Sri Lanka to a fatal war," Thamilchelvan warned.

"Sri Lankan Government is irresponsibly targeting civilian areas in the aerial raids," Thamilchelvan said.

"The Tamil leadership has forwarded a stern warning to Colombo that the LTTE would be forced to retaliate," Thamilchelvan said.
