Mr. Kajendran charged that the Sri Lankan forces in Jaffna were trying to project the Muhamalai and Nagarkovil FDL area as a "war zone".

"Sri Lanka Army is in offensive mindset," he said adding that the there was an "agenda of aggression" behind the "conduct of armed forces" in Jaffna.

"The aggression is continuing despite the call from the International Community to cease violence and create condusive atmosphere for the peace process."
