SLA poised for all-out-carnage

[TamilNet, Sunday, 26 April 2009, 16:23 GMT]
Latest reports from the borders of the so-called safety zone in Mullaiththeevu indicate heavy military build-up by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) despite international calls on the Government of Sri Lanka to cease the attacks on the safety zone and allow access for international aid workers to assist civilians. The Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) has also deployed several attack crafts in the seas following two days of intense air raids. Thousands of civilians would be killed and maimed if Sri Lanka Army launches its final offensive on the safety zone, local NGO workers said stating that only meaningful international pressure could stop the carnage.

Several new military posts have been established on the opposite side of the Nanthik-kadal lagoon according to civilians who relocated inwards into Mu'l'li-vaaykkaal on Sunday. Heavy military buildup was reported near Valaignar-madam in the north and in Vadduvaakal in the south of the safety zone.

The military build-up and the intense air attacks signal that Colombo was ill-prepared to launch the final onslaught on the remaining areas of the safety zone, the reports said.

Sporadic fighting was reported in Valaignar-madam area Saturday and Sunday as more civilians displaced towards Mu'l'li-vaaykkaal.
