Group based attacks continue on northern FDL

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) kept up its attacks on LTTE forward defense lines in Muhamalai, Kilali and Nagarkovil through several limited offensives utilizing small attack teams. Soldiers of the 55th division launched two successful strikes targeting LTTE infrastructure along the National Front, destroying two bunkers in the FDL. At least 3 LTTE cadres were killed in the firefights. In a separate incident, army snipers shot dead two LTTE cadres in Ponnar in Kilali region.

According to reports from the battlefront, majority of the LTTE deaths are child soldiers. LTTE leaders who are in charge of Muhamalai operations, Theepan and Lawrence, are said to be in command bunkers situated as much as 20km away from the frontline.

Meanwhile security around the Rantambe reservoir was tightened today after several civilians tipped off the police about an unidentified group being sighted in the area. Rantambe reservoir and the adjoining hydro power station are vital to the country's power generation capability. Military Intelligence previously warned about LTTE's plans to attack major thermal and hydro power stations in the country to cripple the island's power supply.

  1. I am really confused here, how come the Defence.lk site is saying that all the kebithgollawa victims were hacked to death while blaming the LTTE and all other sites saying that they were all shot execution style?

    What's going on? Something really funny going on here I think!!!

  3. oshanda..i fully agree with your suspicions.I have really bad feeling about this.The only object of defence.lk is to report the news when it happens so people can rely on what they sAY instead of people having to goto a TERRORIST website to findout what is going on.this they should try their best to do instead of trying to write complex english words.we dont need a lesson in english.

  9. I am glad the Police in Polonaruwa have apprehended 18 suspected tigers, as we observed in 2006,the easiest way to get to the south or southeast is through Manamitya,then to Mayangana.It took me only 3 hours to get to Myangana another3 hours to get to Katharagama.That road is excellent and completely ungraded.They will even come down to Mathale and Kandy,using this route.

    ReplyDelete
  10. These 18 were aprehended in Manampitiya and this may be the staging post for them,when they are comming from North and North East areas to journy to south.They may go up and down using this route,Those tthat are sent to SE during the Thoppigala fiasco,may want go on leave on rr,just like our troopers.

  11. security to ALL power stations and major dams must be provided.

    the post mortem approach must stop.

    LTTE had no practice burrying victims OUTSIDE their areas. whatever the rumour mongers try to spread, CDF must be armed and continued with. that is the only way to protect civilians while the armed forces are mainly concentrated on the war.

  15. Guys,

    Police officers who manned Buttala and Thanamalivila priort to respective attacks have been dealt with. It is good news; but has it hasn't gone far enough. Their behaviour amounts to criminal negligence.

    It is encouraging what took place in Manampitiya; there were concerns about the number of detection made along this route before; it looks like something is up.

    The heirachy in the police must be forced to abandon this arm-chair-bound control mechanism; there is a huge administrative gap between the ordinary cop and officers. Police needs someone of Gen Fonseka's calibre. Present IGP is too soft.

    I think, Nimal Madiwaka, DIG Colombo recently took a good initiative by educating the people in the street. We need pragmatic people and methods that work. The age-old cicular system is a relic from the past.

  19. Hey Boss,

    Time and again you proved that you have a short-fuse, by your ultra nationalistic outbursts.

    Then you are telling us you have something else as well in your possession - a spring attached to your a**, by the speed at which you jump to your trivial conclusions.

    We humans react on impulse to killing of our own men and women. We partially got it wrong by putting the whole blame on Tigers, when it happened in the south; according to the President, some Sinahlese elements are at foul-play, as well.

    Your problem is your tendency to paint every Tamil is whiter than white; that is not the case. There are Tamils who are engaged in evil things by cashing in on the Tigers. So, in both communities, there are rascals who use every opportunity to make a killing from the prevailing situation.

    If the outfit says clearly that they are not targetting the civilians, then that factor can be removed from the spectre of killing field; afterwards, the simple process of eliminatin can be used to find out who the real culprits are behind the barbaric acts.

    Unfortunately, the outfit glorifies killings of the unarmed. They can reverse this trend easily, with a stroke of a pen.

    Is it a sign of weekness in the 21st Century?

  20. So pork chops were seen flying..phew. what a fantiastic sight if the tigers couldn;t put together the pieces of their beloved leader!

    all tamil elam supporters, I know you read these; your tamil elam is now dead with its leader. I challenge you to show a recent photograph of the fatpig, i.e. Prabakaran alias Pirapaharan or the LTTE leader. You can't becuase he is DEAD. Has anyone seen the fatpig in any LTTE website after 28November 2007? NO

    photoes can be taken inside bunkers and is no excuse.

    therefore the reality is that the fatpig is NOT IN A PHOTOGENIC CONDITION!!!!

    although his birthday is celebrated with blood and wine every year, it is a tragedy on tamil elam that his death is not marked with a decent funeral!!

    and they talk about not respecting the dead!

    (in the rare event of the fatpig reappearing, we are still OK as we have enough bombs for him; will roast him one day. labana sare api denawa wedei)

  27. After analyzing the information published on various places, I have made the following assumptions.

    1. At the past, when one of their (LTTE) high profile leaders was died, the didn't try to hide the news from the general public. (eg. Selvam, Charles)

    2. At the past, when one of their high profile leaders was injured, they didn't published the truth. (Eg. Soosei, Swarnam, Bhanu, VP)

    3. At the past, they always tried to hide the information on their loses (either their carders or military hardware).

    4. The reaction of LTTE and their supporters (eg. Tamilnut) shows they have shocked due to the SLAF bombing and the have something to hide. Contradictory press releases, closing the town and radio communications are evidences.

    5. Therefore I think

    * one (or many) of their high profile leaders were injured
    OR/AND
    * some of their important military hardware were damaged (eg. kurumbatti)
    OR/AND
    * considerable no. of their elite carders were died

    due to the bombing.

    Any ideas?

  39. I am no military man but what has to be stopped is the LTTE creating problems for us in the south and EAST when they are bombed in the north.if i was being bombed and i knew that my time was running out i would try to send as many killers as possible to the EAST (because i know the lingo and area) and south(to fight another day).This is probably why some divisions have not advanced very much(provide security) and also providing a "military corridor" for other advancing units.The more i think about this the idea that comes to mind is this offensive is isolating ltte cadres and these isolated cadres have to contend with the injured and lack area leadership so fragmentation is taking place

  41. Sasa,

    The LTTE has SAM missiles (MAPNDAP's) as well as AAA guns. They use guns and missiles against both fighters and helicopters. However neither will be effective agaist a jet fighter. Helicopters will take necessary precautions when operating over LTTE areas to avoid AA fire and missile threat.

  42. if pottu is still alive and Susei is appointed as the leader then we will see a lot of internal conflicts between them in near future...

    ReplyDelete
  43. i don't think Andare's post is very accurate.

    BUT appointing soosai after VP is a VERY good decision for the LTTE. he's got evrything a ruthless HANDS-ON LTTE leader (just like VP)needs.

    potta is only the KGB, though powerful. his services would become more important when TE is somewhat firmly establish; now they need to do the ground work for it and ssosai is the man.

    also the LTTE retains its "fish connection" if soosai comes to the top and avoids provoking india too much.

  46. LTTE anti-aircraft weapons aren't effective over 2km above, unless they go for more advanced ones.

    if the jets go higher, their accuracy tends to suffer.

    pilots should be allowed to attack the designated target AND attack any AA guns and other terrorist-like stuff This last part was always missing from the SLAF; i think it is time the SLAF pilots are allowed to be more pro-active.

  49. Ranil, ideally yes, the TMVP should have been disarmed by now.

    But that's not the case. If they lay down their arms right now, the LTTE will attack them and also start sneaking into parts of the east. To keep the LTTE out of their areas. The East has just been liberated, and it may take some time until the Police is able to fully maintian law and order in the area. Until then there's no choice but to let the TMVP carry weapons. Democracy does not trounce the need for security security.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ranil,
    Disarming makes a lot of sense.However we dont know anything really about the security situation in the east.Is it possible that pilliyans people are helping the forces in some way and the LTTE know about it.I think there are a lot of interested parties(including minorities)that have made this LTTE game a money spinning operation.I think first of all Mr Blake (a decent good man)needs to visit the TMVP headquarters and ask them what their plans are and spend sometime with them.This is the logical thing to do.You understand that pilliyans comments about the LTTE's influence on this perfect IC is a very valid point.I think that people dislike pilliyan because reagrless of his underhanded operations which have to be proven..they wont be able to destroy SLanka at least from an environmental perspective.I hope you understand what i am saying.

  51. Ranil..SLanka is a small country.We are not the U.S.WE cannot have a 100% market economy like some political idiots in the past tried to create.what we need is a socialist democracy with these co-op stores etc.It is ok to have rich businesses as well by all means but the priority must be to the common man.this is why some people dislike the Hon pres because what he is doing is trying to redistribute money to the poor villages and develop them.The chances are as the east develops pillian may win one election but he will loose the next unless he keeps his promises.lets see what happens

  65. Sri Lanka probes 16 bodies in shallow graves

    by Amal Jayasinghe

    COLOMBO (AFP) - Sri Lankan police were investigating the gruesome discovery of 16 bullet-riddled bodies dumped in shallow graves in a government-controlled part of the island.

    The bodies were found on Thursday evening by villagers in a district 206 kilometres (130 miles) north of the capital Colombo. The victims had been blindfolded, tied up and shot, officials said.

    "We are now investigating to initially establish the identity of the victims," said a senior officer in the area, who declined to be named. "We have also increased security in the area."

    The latest discovery is certain to compound concerns over the rights situation in Sri Lanka and an increasingly dirty war between troops and Tamil Tiger rebels in which both sides are accused of killing civilians.

    Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have already expressed fears that more civilians could be killed following the government's decision this month to pull out of a ceasefire with the rebels.

    The United Nations human rights body has also been demanding it be allowed to establish a permanent presence in Sri Lanka to monitor human rights, but the government has furiously rejected the demand.

    Local police officials said they believed the victims had been killed elsewhere and that the graves were hurriedly dug by the side of a lonely stretch of road.

    A local hospital source, who also asked not to be named, said autopsies will be performed by Saturday.

    The defence ministry immediately blamed Tamil Tiger rebels, who control a large area further to the north and are fighting for independence from the island's ethnic Sinhalese majority.

    In a statement, the ministry said the victims were believed to be civilians who had been searching for their cattle, only to be killed by "suspected LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) terrorists."

    But local residents said there had been no reports of such a large group going missing in the area.

    On Thursday evening, government media officials asked local radio and television stations not to broadcast the report of the mass graves, and some stations complied, pulling the story from their primetime news bulletins.


    The press is severely restricted in Sri Lanka, with reporters systematically barred by the government from travelling to front-line areas and rebel-held territory.

    In October, police found the bodies of two people blindfolded and shot in the head, while another body was found dumped in a lake near Colombo.

    There has been no claim of responsibility for any of the execution-style killings, and the identities of victims has not been discovered or disclosed.

    Earlier last year, several minority ethnic Tamils were found dead in and around the capital and elsewhere.

    A separate government probe found 430 civilians had been killed during a five-month period up to February 2007, though it was not broken down into ethnicity. Since then, no official count has been announced.

    The defence ministry meanwhile said 36 Tamil Tiger rebels were killed in separate clashes across the island's embattled north since Thursday morning. The military also kept up air raids on Friday, the ministry said.

    Since the start of this month, Sri Lanka's defence ministry has said government forces have killed 630 rebels while 26 soldiers have died.

    The claims cannot be independently verified.

    It's not possible. What do you think the international community will say if government displays photos of dead LTTE cadres everyday. We'll be portrayed as a barbaric nation, which will help the LTTE's cause. So our forces can't show us everything they did to convince us that they are winning.

    Anyway, we'll see if they were lying or not when they start advancing into Wanni. The preliminary stages are going pretty well, and no one can deny that we have captured a lot of ground. And it is a sign that these figures are correct (at least to some extent) from the level of resistance the LTTE is giving the army. In earlier eelam wars, they usually were on the offensive and we the defensive. Now it's pretty much the other way around.

  78. Crap news agencies talk big about the killing of 'unkown' civilians with the suspicion that they may be LTTE related, but were not so voicy about the Buttala attack.

    next time if pro-LTTE fellows are killed, they must be burnt to ashes, whoever they are - cadrs, cattle, civilians premadasa style.

    if not reported missing and not found dead, that's it.

    i don't honestly think the fat pig is dead. someone was telling me that the SLAF bombardment was intentionally aimed avoiding casualties (only property damage) on the 23 which happened to be the APRC proposals day to "frighten" the tigers to consider talks.

    if anything very serious had happened in Vanni, by now we would know; there are enough red cross, etc. workers to leak the info.

    i think this was a complete waste of money

    Do our fighters have night attacking capability now? Are the Kfirs (which can be used both as interceptor and ground attack aircraft) ready to shoot down the LTTE planes if they make a reappearance or will we have to rely on ground based defences? I remember that Matara Ayiya mentioned something about this....

  92. Guys,

    Karuna will be freed in a matter of weeks; his offence is a minor one. After all, this is a cosmetic punishment, instigated by political interests. In the UK, prison population has reached the spill-level. So, offenders of minor calibre, just get released.
    I am sure, if he can patch up his differences with Pillayan, he will be able to participate in forthcoming polls in the East. That outcome is determined by his ex-comrade and not the British.

    Yes, Karuna will pass off what is left of his sentence in luxury; almost 4 star-level: gym, TV, access to newspapers, vocational skills, very comfortable room with all ameneties. Because of his background, he may get some extras as well. I am sure he will have some important visitors too. I still think he is a lucky man, despite the sentence.

    Let draw some consolation from the age-old saying: my enemy's enemy is my friend.

    Anyway, Karuna split the movement at where it really matters. We shouldn't underestimate it. He was naughty too, but I have a soft spot for him now.

    I wonder how he got this nickname in the first place; I think even in Tamil, there is a meaning that is equivalent to 'Karunawa'.

    If you guys know about this trivial thing, just drop a line for me. Thanks in advance.

    By the way i think the IC & LTTE diasphora thought that this APRC proposal includes the LTTE as well..apparently not so...bohoohooo..it will be implemented until elections in the north and after the extermination of the LTTE..if thats possible.

  113. Guys,

    With regard to VP's fate, I think the version of D B S Jeyaraj is the right one; the rest are just being hyped up by the analysts to the extent they oscillate between lunacy and fantacy.

    He may have injured on 26th November, but certainly did not die.

    If you guys remember the participation of Mathivathini, his wife, in a ceremony to open up an elderly home in Killinochchi, that bears evidence that he was still alive then, but something was certainly up.

    Just look at her ears closely; she wore the earrings. It is customory for a Tamil woman to remove them, in the event of husband's death. Thamilchelvan's wife did not wear them on the same occassion. Just look at the news in December on Tamilnet.

    So, his death in November is just wishful thinking. However, the raid on Wednesday may have changed all that.

    By the way, our mate Karuna Amman has become the most famous scapegoat in the world in London, England.

    "Interesting to see "Liberation Tigers anti-aircraft unit fired"

    Defencenet any news on this?"

    The bombed location was not a civllian settlement.
    Anti aircraft units caused no damages to fighter jets.
    Once again, those AA guns were placed around the base. They were not rushed to the base while the attacks was taking place.

    renegade,
    "ts really surprisin the no of casualties that we get everyday about SLA successes,like 10,15,20 Terra's killed every day!! but where's the proof?(if its real,that is)..atleast show us the bodies recovered on the battlefield(censorin the faces)"

    Those claims by MOD are not always true. But most of the time the general idea is quite the same as actual battlefield situation.
    These figures look extremely high when you add them up and declare to the public the total. But assume at least 3 tigers are killed in each major front every day (which is a minimum). There are 5 fronts; Muhamalai, Nagarkovil, Vavuniya, Weli-oya and Mannar.
    So the total would be 15 LTTE casualties. But if you say the total without mentioning what happened at the individual fronts, then it seems unrealistic.
    But MOD occasionally does downplay SLA casualties.

    But most of the times the bodies are not recovered as LTTE usually retreats carrying them in the dead. Whatever bodies we capture are not always aired to due to various concerns.

    "and also,defnet where's that video of toppigala,with the tiger dead bodies??-"SEEING IS BELEIVING!!""

  124. As a practice air raids are carried out in day time. So why LTTE don't set up all thier secret meetings in the night? I hope SLAF should consider about 24 hour service. Even though it is more easier for pilots to take targets in day time at least for practice they should do that and just need to make sure no civilian casulaties. This will give 24 hours continuous full fun for tiger leaders.

    I was wondering did your Airforce operatives stop hiring local laborers without security and background checks to work on AirForce bases? As in the US, even for a brief visit to the base, we need to do a background check of the visitors and always escort them when they are in the base. I could not believe when I heard the news that there was a LTTE working as a laborer in AAFB runway expansion. I heard that the base commander never had done a background and security screaning of the local laborers.

    By the way, we should NOT allow any civilian vehicles to drive on top of major dams and bunts because LTTE can blow them up easily. Hopefully they have taken action against treats.

    [Explosives found along Japan-Lanka Friendship Bridge
    Rafik Jalaldeen

    Thalangama police found C4 explosives weighing 175g at the Japan Lanka Friendship bridge yesterday afternoon.

    According to Thalangama police, a Police Constable on foot patrol observed four suspects including a female behaving suspiciously along the bridge and questioned them.

    "One suspect pulled out a pistol and attempted to fire at the constable," police said.

    "When the constable pulled out his T56, the suspects fled the area leaving behind a parcel," police added.

    The Army bomb squad found C4 explosives weighing 175g and an eight inch wire cord inside the parcel.

    Thalangama police are investigating. ]

    We need to protect major bridges, power transformers, other critical infrastructure against LTTE terrorists.

    Wow!

    Dude, I totally disagree with the POV!

    Why? Let me explain...

    It is high time the LTTE casualties were shown in digital-precision as that is the only way the message can be sent to the LTTE supporting Diaspora (the truly cowardly fcuking carcass-maggots in my view) vis-à-vis the futility of this horrific, fake-cause, war.

    The Tamil Diaspora has been misled by the LTTE Sons-of-Whores (SOW’s) into believing that they can take on the SLDF and after killing the last SLDF, the dreamland “thamileelam” will be formed very soon! These pics of LTTE casualties (like bloody “mala-massod” after bug-spray) go a long way to convince the Tamil Diaspora that the complete opposite is true. As well, these pics convey the message that when Tamilnet and other LTTE outlets say the LTTE only lost “one” or “two” after each major encounter with the SLDF, it is all a pile of horseshit!

    I say the time is long past now for sugar-coating the bitter pill! LTTE terrorist made the bed, so let the SOW sleep on it…LTTE SOW chose the bride, so let the SOW marry her!

    I have personally written to MOD asking that these LTTE casualty pics be given the highest publicity as there have been numerous instances where MOD has been reluctant to not only give the real LTTE KIA number – i.e. without playing down the true LTTE KIA - (hard to believe? I bet for many of you! But, believe me, there have been instance of this during the “liberation of the East” and that is the TRUTH!), but restrictions have been place on publishing the pics!

    This is a time of reckoning – time to reckon with TERRORISM.

    AND I say…

    This is a time to “THINK OUT OF THE BOX.” Enough of going stale by politely and judiciously deciding to “stay within the box and in the process getting whacked by the LTTE SOWs and their overseas supporters!”

    Greets to all my patriotic bros/sis’s here…

    So the bloody kossa was able to "pull out" his T-56 (wonder if he really meant his dick!), but could not fire at the lepers before they ran away! AND, the lepers too ran away without shooting the Kossa although they are alleged to have already had the micro-pistol in hand?

    Wow Indeed!

    The bloody SL police's performance is bloody pathetic compared to the heroic performances of the SLA, STF, SLAF, SLN! High time the bloody Victor-Pin-padi-Perera ole fart either stepped down and handed the reins to someone who is younger, motivated, and capable (i.e. someone who has a passion to hunt down the LTTE mother-f'ers "with extreme prejudice!")

    175g of C4 I don't think that is enough to damage a bridge significantly is it? Might have been in preparation to target another bus or SLA vehicle?

    As for the cop and the tigers yeah that just boggles the mind, why neither one of them shot the other! I guess I can understand the tiger POV here is a guy with a T-56 and all you have is a pistol, maybe they gave this cop more credit than he was worth it seems!

    What??? It was in his pocket or something? I don't know why the police is issued with weapons if they can't shoot properly. (sounds like the target was pretty close too, practically next to him, if he was about to question them) And when the police do hit someone, it's usually an innocent civilian, who didn't see the 'halt' signal at a checkpoint. (Of course they aim at the legs, but hit the hea)

    And BTW, did he only pull the weapon out? Didn't he even fire a shot?

    ReplyDelete
  145. The 175g of C4 in shoe polish tins would have been to attack Power Transformers or a Telecommunication Exchange box. Or maybe they are to be set off in multiple locations simultaneously to create panic amongst civilians.

    As for the cop with a T-56 and the group of bikers may be there were people around, or may be by the time he switch off the safety knob to semi or auto and ran the bolt back to chamber a round the group would have been a good 40-60m from where the cop was...

    This is the sad sate of the SL Police...slow to react, poorly trained and incompetent had he fired and some taken alive they would have yielded valuable information.

    The fact is our urban police units are equipped with assault rifles which are heavy and cumbersome to handle in emergency situation. Like the British metro police and even the Singaporean police and short range sub-machinegun would suit them well.

    I’m sure Pakistan would come forward to supply POF MP-5A3 or MP-5Ks under a line of credit. Our motorized (mainly traffic cops on hi capacity pursuit bikes) cops are not armed.

    The police need to equip each officer on duty with a weapon, handcuffs, handheld VHF/UHF communicator and Baton.

    A weapon can be a simple 9mm pistol (no need of expensive SIG 226s or GLOCK-17s : a cheap NORINCO copy of the Browning HP or CZ-75 would make a good personal side arm) with 2 spare mags. Same goes for the SMGs. A Chinese pistol would not cost more that $120~200 in G-to-G sales. They might be cheaper than that too.

    They can deploy a combination of police officers armed with MP-5s and Pistols and have T-56A2 armed cops with body armor and helmets as rapid reaction teams who patrol and are stationed in vital areas.

    I think the police had some units like this some time back called S.O.U. (Special Operations Unit) they had two teams for Colombo South, North, East and West.
