LTTE prepares for mass suicide; key terror leaders trapped
LTTE terrorists are preparing for a mass suicide after
being effectively cut-off of escape routes, both land and sea and now
encircled in a mere 3.5sq.km of land West of Vellamullivaikkal, Wanni
military sources said citing intercepted LTTE communication.
According to defence observers, the LTTE senior ranks
are expecting to prolong its imminent defeat resorting to such futile
terror tactics using civilian hostages, new recruits and black tigers as
weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). "The terrorists have no way to go
and the only way out is to surrender with the security forces or to be
crushed in the military advance" a military official said. Terrorists
are blowing off large explosive and ammunition dumps also using stocks
of white phosphorous with improvised barrel bombs to create large
destruction within the hostage makeshift camps.
Meanwhile, an LTTE attempt to ram an explosive laden
bus into the 58 Division forward defences failed with the bus exploding
prematurely. No damages were caused to troops military said adding that
at least 10 terrorists were killed due to the explosion.
During initial interrogations conducted, Soosai's wife
had told with the Navy that Soosai along with LTTE leader Prabhakaran,
Pottu Amman and some other key terrorists as still holed up in the small
area at Vellamullivaikal.
