LTTE reiterates SLMM access to Northern FDL, Vaharai region

[TamilNet, Monday, 06 November 2006, 15:01 GMT]
Colombo should allow the neutral Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) officials to inspect the forward defence line (FDL) areas and provide the SLMM access Vaharai region to undertake independent verification of the ground situation, instead of producing "baseless allegations of LTTE attacks," in Colombo media, LTTE's Military Spokesman Irasiah Ilanthirayan said Monday night. Sri Lankan armed forces have intensified the attacks with a "military intention" of launching another offensive aiming to escalate the armed hostilities, the Tigers spokesman told media from Kilinochchi.

An LTTE cadre was wounded in Northern Forward Defence Line (FDL) as SLA intensified artillery shelling towards FDL localities in Muhamalai and Nagarkovil and the shells damaged civilian buildings in Pallai, he added.

The preparations on the part of the Sri Lanka Army reminded the last offensive.

Tigers succesfully defeated a major SLA offensive towards LTTE controlled territory in Northern Front, killing more than a hundred Sri Lankan troopers and capturing a soldier alive.

A ground operation by the SLA troops and paramilitary cadres inside LTTE territory in Panichchankerni in Vaharai region was also defeated by the Tigers before the SLA debacle in Kilali that sent tens of bodybags of SLA soldiers to Colombo.
