Tigers blame Sri Lanka for Pottuvil killings

[TamilNet, Monday, 18 September 2006, 07:22 GMT]
Liberation Tigers Amparai District Political Head, Mr. Jeya, has blamed Sri Lankan military for "indulging in sabotage activities." In a statement issued in Tamil Monday, the Tigers charged that the Sri Lankan counter-insurgency Special Task Force (STF) was behind the slayings and "sabotage activities" aimed at creating tension between the Tamil and Muslim communities in Amparai district. Conveying condolences to the Muslim victims in Pottuvil and expressing sympathies to their families, Mr. Jeya, urged the civilians "not to fall prey to the calculated propaganda of the Sri Lankan military till the truth behind the slayings is uncovered."

Condemning the massacre of Muslim civilians, Mr. Jeya, further charged that Colombo was engaged in a "damage-control excercise" to save itself from the "bad reputation it has gained in the humanitarian violences and massacres of aid-workers in its military aggression," disregarding the Ceasefire Agreement.

"Sri Lanka has chosen to save it's reputation by demonizing the Tigers," Amparai District Political Head of the Tigers charged.

12 days ago, on September 06, the Tigers repulsed an offensive launched by the STF towards LTTE controlled Kanchikudicharu area.
