Aerial attack near Hospital, a message of terror, says Thamilchelvan

[TamilNet, Thursday, 02 November 2006, 11:59 GMT]
The Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) that promised to halt the military offensives at the negotiating table, in front of the International Community in Geneva, has sent a "message of terror" within 24 hours of LTTE delegation's arrival in Kilinochchi by conducting a "gruesome" aerial attack killing an innocent family and terrorising the patients at the General Hopital premises, said Political Head of the Liberation Tigers, S. P. Thamilchelvan, following the Sri Lankan aerial attack in the heart of Kilinochchi town Thursday. Hospitals which serve the most humanitarian need and deserve utmost protection from any acts of violence, have now become targets to GoSL's campaign of terror, he added.

"The International Community should have no reservations in condemning this gruesome act," Mr. Thamilchelvan said.

The International Community was witness to the GoSL delegation's expressed commitment to ceasing violence and halting all offensives to create and sustain a conducive enviornment for the peace process, he said.

"This is certainly not the way forward in creating and sustaining the kind of atmosphere for talks," Thamilchelvan said.

Sri Lankan Government has once again proved it was engaged in "state terrorism," he further charged.

LTTE Political Head further accused the Government of Sri Lanka for not having cooperated with the ICRC in declaring the hospital premises and surrounding areas as a safety zone in accordance with Geneva Conventions.
