Wanni exodus continue, 60 civilians seek protection with security forces- Mullaittivu

60 more civilians including 24 males and 36 females from the non-liberated areas of Mullaittivu District have arrived at Tanduwan general area, 4km Northwest of Nedunkerni today (Dec 22) morning.

These civilians all locals in Mullaittivu district have sought protection with security forces following a desperate escape made from the LTTE Wanni hellhole. Thousands are reported stranded with LTTE as defence observers believe the actual figures to be more than the elaborated numbers recently.

Apart from carrying out genocidal attacks targeting both the Muslim and Sinhalese communities in the south, LTTE terrorists are also shrinking the Tamil populace in Wanni, luring both young and old to its insane separatist cause through intimidations and brutal methods, the sources asserted.

Nedunkerni was liberated by the Task Force -4 troops on Sunday (Dec 21), after hours of fierce fighting with LTTE.
