Attacks against civilians devised by Sri Lankan military intelligence - LTTE

[TamilNet, Saturday, 07 April 2007, 04:46 GMT]
Sri Lankan military intelligence has resorted to attacks against Tamil and Sinhala civilians to depict a bad pattern of deliberate attacks against civilians with a "sinister motive" of tarnishing the image of the Liberation Tigers, charged Irasiah Ilanthirayan, military spokesman of the Liberation Tigers, Saturday after the latest Claymore attack that targeted a civilian bus on Vavuniya Mannar Road.

"Sri Lankan military intelligence establishment has devised bomb attacks and wanton killings during the last 2 weeks with a sinister motive of tarnishing the image of the Tigers," Mr. Ilanthirayan told media.

"Colombo has already lost it's face in the International arena with it's worst human rights record."

"When the International Community is carefully observing the developments in the ground, the Sri Lankan establishment hopes to take advantage by tarnishing the image of the Tigers by attempting to paint a bad picture of the LTTE as a party engaged in deliberate attacks against civilians," the Tiger spokesman added.
