LTTE continues targeting Tamil civilians: suicide bomb attack at IDP rescue centre - Kilinochchi

LTTE continues targeting Tamil civilians: suicide bomb attack at IDP rescue centre - Kilinochchi

At least 29 people including 10 civilians were killed and 64 others including 40 civilians reported injured when an LTTE woman suicide bomber blew herself at an IDP rescue centre, North of Visuamadu in Mullaittivu this morning (Feb 9) at around 11.30 a.m. 3 woman soldiers were also among the military fatalities reported.

According to defence observers, LTTE terrorists have perpetrated the attack targeting the civilians in reprisal, for defying LTTE's orders to take-up arms. Exact casualty figures are yet to be estimated as tension prevails in the area. Security forces immediately cordon off the area, while medical units were rushed to the site, the sources said. Women and children are said to be among the many reported killed and injured in the suicide bomb blast, security sources said. Ambulances carried the wounded to the Kilinochchi hospital.

The female suicide bomber had arrived among the civilians who were seeking protection with security forces in guise. The bomber had blown herself before being screened, the reports further said.

According to them, the LTTE in the face of an inevitable defeat is trying to score levels with the innocent civilians. On Sunday(8), a group of civilians escaping from the LTTE hellholes North of Visuamadu and Sugandirapuram have ramped an LTTE barricade assaulting a LTTE 'police' cadre and killing two female terrorists in the cause. Similarly civilians, who were forcibly armed and sent to the forefront by LTTE, have taken on the less numbered LTTE cadres beating the terrorists and tying them behind, on 7th February. The civilians had later managed to flee towards the security forces controlled area, the sources further said.

Earlier, LTTE terrorists used a 13 year old child suicide bomber against the advancing 55 Division troops in Chalai on 4th Feb. Observers of LTTE activity have expressed concerns over the likelihood of the LTTE increasing such attacks targeting civilians to enact a large scale carnage instilling fear among the people who are entrapped in the non-liberated regions in Mullaittivu.

LTTE is a ruthless terrorist outfit that has been fighting for a mono ethnic separate homeland for the Tamils in Sri Lanka since 1983. During its 3 decades of existence the outfit has pioneered a large number of terror tactics particularly in the field of suicide bombing, that have been soon copied by the other terror organizations in the world. Fuelled by extremist tribal ideologies held by their megalomaniac leader, V. Prabhakaran, and largely foreign funds generated through its false propaganda, LTTE terrorists have killed tens and thousands of innocent civilians in many village massacres, bus bombings, train bombings, ethnic cleansing raids, and etc. The outfit is also included in the UN list of shame for using children for terror attacks.

This is how they (LTTE) 'liberate' the innocent Tamil people in Sri Lanka. Feeding on the same people, once they(LTTE) lambasted to 'represent'.

'A helping hand in need'. Sri Lankan Security forces are the only liberators who can free these innocent people from the LTTE tyranny.

Injured and traumatized: civilians been evacuated for immediate medical attention. The reality of a facade 'struggle' exposed.

LTTE does not even spare the elderly. These people fled to the liberated area after undergoing unprecedented hardships with LTTE.

The diaspora community, the 'victim industry', and the Colombo 'elites' should be shamed off for whitewashing the heinous crimes perpetrated  by the LTTE over the years.

Many pretend to be worried about the safety of the civilians "trapped" in remaining LTTE hiding areas in Wanni. Yet, they refrain revealing the accurate facts.

Obviously, the pictures would be embarrassing for anyone who had provided funds to the LTTE and its front organisations.

Millions of dollars were pumped for the LTTE by bogus HR campaigners and 'free media' organizations to continue with its crimes unabated.

These people were on the run for hours evading LTTE death squads before they arrived at the IDP rescue centre today (Feb 9) morning.
