'Bountiful in killing shells, but no means for food packets'

[TamilNet, Friday, 24 April 2009, 00:37 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) which was able to fire thousands of shells per day into the so-called safety zone to capture the civilians, doesn't have enough means to feed them when they are captured, said a District Secretariat official in Vavuniyaa. The SLA, which is still keeping the civilians inside the militarized zone, north of Oamanthai, for its screening, has asked the Tamil people of Vavuniyaa through loudspeaker announcements, to donate cooked-food packets to supply the captured civilians, the official speaking in condition of anonymity told TamilNet Thursday. So far, no civil official is able to confirm the arrival of the new batch of civilians into the internment camps of Vavuniyaa town this week.

Up to Thursday, only 5,147 civilians have reached Jaffna this week despite Colombo's tall claims and 'relieved' endorsements of the international community of the 'evacuation' of more than 100,000 civilians from Vanni.

The refugees who arrived in Jaffna went through sea route in fishing boats.

The real situation of the civilians in the SLA occupied Vanni territory is not known to any civil sources.

"The SLA move asking for food packets from people is seen only as a prelude to Colombo asking for huge international assistance to go ahead with its long-term structural genocide of Tamils and to buttress its sagging economy in the guise of refugee-maintenance and 'rehabilitation'," commented the DS official in Vavuniyaa.
