It is now a well known news story that 8 army personnel and forest department employees were ambushed and killed by the LTTE inside Vilpaththu sanctuary. After seeing the photos of the incident, we've realized that the phrase 'ambushed and killed' do not properly describe the tragic incident.
These pictures must be seen by every human rights organization, all NGOs that operate inside this country, international community and all tiger sympathizers. The pictures reveal the true mentality and the sadistic nature of the world's most brutal terrorist organization which calls itself a liberation movement.
After shooting the victims at gunpoint, the LTTE has apparently 'played' with the bodies. You can see the photos here. (We linked to LeN upload as we cannot upload 5Mpixel photos (even more gruesome) in our DC due to technical issues which have been bothering us for the last week). The bodies were found after a search operation which involved more than 600 army personnel.
In other security developments, it is suspected that the destroyed tiger arms vessels had aircraft components on board. In addition to this, ships also had a large quantity of artillery shells and explosives on board. Intelligence sources reveal that the LTTE is facing a severe shortage of arms and explosives.
Meanwhile senior LTTE leaders are said to be worried about an army operation into Mullaithiv jungle where Velupille Pirabaharan's hideout is suspected to be. LTTE has strengtherened its FDLs at Weli Oya (Manal Aru in Eelam termoinology) and have cut trenches for an additional 3rd defence line.
