[TamilNet, Saturday, 04 March 2006, 07:15 GMT]
The Batticaloa Political Wing of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, in a communiqué issued Saturday, condemned the attack by the paramilitary cadres working with the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) on the LTTE Vavunathivu sentry point where two LTTE cadres were killed Saturday early morning 12.30 a.m. "We point out that the killings are a gross violation of the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA), and provides further evidence that Sinhala extremists, SLA, its intellligence wing and the collaborating paramilitary forces are engaged in nefarious activities designed to trigger an all out war in our homeland to bring further calamity to our people," the communiqué further said.

"Saturday early morning, SLA soldiers and Paramilitaries working with the Sri Lanka Army, had come out of the Sri Lanka sentry point located at about 300 meters from the LTTE sentry point, and from the closely located SLA camp, have attacked the sentry point inside the Liberation Tigers controlled area. LTTE fighter, Thavalogan, and another LTTE cadre were killed in the attack.

"When our fighters returned fire, the SLA soldiers and the paramilitaries withdrew towards the Vavunathivu SLA camp. We have received reliable information that soon after that an ambulance from the SLA camp, escorted by military vehicles, drove towards Batticaloa.

"The killings occuring soon after the Geneva talks on 22-23rd February the Sri Lanka Government and the Liberation Tigers agreed to strengthen the implementation of the Cease Fire Agreement and expressed commitment to fully adhere to the CFA, clearly indicate that anti-peace elements of the Sri Lanka Government, SLA and paramilitaries are intent on triggering an all out war.

"We strongly condemn the attack and killings of the two LTTE cadres, and point out that the killings are a gross violation of the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA)," the communiqué said.
