Colombo opens new military camps, ‘Red soldiers’ to monitor Eezham Tamils

[TamilNet, Thursday, 09 January 2014, 21:57 GMT]
The occupying Sri Lankan military has created a new unit, which has come to be called as ‘Red Army’ with military intelligence personnel fluent in three languages. The new ‘Red’ soldiers of the occupying military will be patrolling the interior villages of Vanni in bicycles. While Stephen Rapp, the US Ambassador for Global Criminal Justice was visiting North on Wednesday, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, the Sri Lankan presidential sibling and SL defence secretary, declared open 3 major military bases of the occupying Sri Lankan military in North. A large complex, which was earlier built by the political division of the LTTE near Ira'naimadu tank, has now become one of the new military installations of the occupying SL military in Ki'linochchi district.

Another new military base was opened declared at Keerimalai in Jaffna, which is a major pilgrim center of Eezham Tamils along the northern coast of the Jaffna peninsula and is adjacent to the Sinhala Military Zone that is in the making in Valikaamam North.

At the same time, former military base of the 52 Division, which has been shifted from Vara'ni in Thenmaraadchi, was declared open at a new locality at Ezhuthumadduvaa'l.

A military hospital, with modern facilities, was also declared opened at Palaali military complex on Wednesday.

The LTTE was building a large complex at Ira'naimadu, which was referred to as the Parliament Complex. The building was also meant to be the secretariat, if an interim administration was to be formed during the times of the peace negotiations.

The same complex has now become the new Sinhala military installation in Vanni.

The post-Mu'l'livaaykkaal space given to Colombo by the international community of Establishments serves nothing but the military consolidation of the genocidal State and the continuation of the genocidal war waged against the remaining Eezham Tamil people, political observers in the island said.
