25kg claymore mine uncovered in Jaffna

A disaster was averted today when Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troops uncovered a Claymore mine from a suburb in Jaffna. The speciality of this mine was its weight. The mine weighed 25KG, marking it one of the heaviest of the type to be found in the history of Eelam Wars.

It is a well known fact that LTTE uses claymore mines to attack military convoys and VVIP escorts as well as civilian targets such as buses and trains. Average weight of the mines they have so far used hovers around the 10Kg mark. The mine uncovered today surpasses this margin by a good 15Kg. The 25kg mine, if exploded in a populated area, could have caused widespread destruction to both lives and property.

    thanks for the info mate.

    panhinda,
    "ts the sesame seed oil culture and mentality. There is something inherently wrong with these people. Jaffna should be isolated and treated like a lunatic asylum."

    Undercover LTTE cadres smuggle these weapons in. Something is wrong with the LTTE yes. But not with majority of the population in Jaffna that are civilians.

  6. EX FORCES TOP BRASS GUILTY
    NO TENDER PROCEDURES

    Among senior military officials implicated by the Commission are former commander of the Army Lt. General Lionel Balagalla, Former Commander of the Navy and Chief of Defence Staff Admiral Daya Sandagiri and former Air Force Commander Air Vice Marshal Jayalath Weerakkody and several other senior military officials involved in the procurement process.

    By Ranga Jayasuriya
    @ LBN / Sunday, February 10, 2008

    The Presidential Commiss-ion which investigated the procurement of arms for the Sri Lankan armed forces during the period of 2000 to 2005 has ruled that allegations against the ex commanders of the Sri Lankan Army, Navy, Air Force and several other senior officers have been established, LAKBIMAnEWS learnt.

    “Tender procedures had not been followed, apparently no tenders had been called at all in certain incidents,” a well placed Commission source said. “Most of the time, the procurement process had been conducted arbitrarily under the pretext of national security, “ he said. The three member Presidential Commission chaired by Justice Shirani Thilakawardene last week presented its report to the President.

    Among senior military officials implicated by the Commission are former commander of the Army Lt. General Lionel Balagalla, Former Commander of the Navy and Chief of Defence Staff Admiral Daya Sandagiri and former Air Force Commander Air Vice Marshal Jayalath Weerakkody and several other senior military officials involved in the procurement process.

    According to findings, the Sri Lankan Navy has ordered and paid the Colombo Dockyard Ltd for a fleet of ten Dvora Fast Attack Craft with the specified craft length of 27 meters. However, the craft the SLN received was three meters short of the specifications mentioned in the tenders.
    “No gainsaying that these FACs are of inferior quality,” quipped a naval official.

    In another incident, the SLN under its former Commander Admiral Sandagiri had pursued a deal to purchase archaic 30 mm Oerlikon (GCM-A/A32) gun systems to mount on Naval Dvora Fast Attack Craft. The supplier was UK’s Royal Ordinance. The deal was abandoned after Admiral Sandagiri’s successor, Vice Admiral Vasantha Karannagoda wrote to the President expressing strong reservations about the deal. The SLN later purchased much superior Bush Master 30 mm gun systems at one forth of the cost of the Oerlikon system.

    The Presidential Commission was appointed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa to investigate the procurement of arms for the three Armed Forces during the period 2000-2005.

    I read comments by various readers over the last few weeks and can not believe how impatient some of them are. I don't know why do they want our soldiers to march into LTTE territory at F1 speeds.

    The same situation was there when our forces were marking time before the final thrust to liberate the MavilAru anicut.

    Also on the verge of Vakarei liberation people were starting to question their ability.

    People couldn't wait until Army gradually moved to liberate the Thoppigala.

    This is war, not sports. Wait and see. As long as casualties are minimum and their is a goal in sight you should be happy.

  8. Guys,

    Some of you wondered as to how the savages man five fronts simultaneously when the numbers are down as reported.

    All-out-war has not broken out at any of the fronts yet and the attacks are still carried out by especially trained small teams. In short, the army has gone into guerilla mode, when terrorists were on conventional mode - running civilian administration; use of artillery and tanks, even if they are captured ones; running an air force with the world's shortest and most inhospitable runway, to name but a few. This is something long overdue and the guy or the team who came up with this strategy is a genious in the making, who can be elevated to the ranks of Napoleon, Wellington and Lord Nelson.

    So, the number game is not an issue yet; the battle plan has made the savages guessing what the army was up to - months, at least. They are no-where near craking that code.

    Yes, folks all I can say is the battle field is as hot has the private parts of female savages, fuelled by eastrogen. The issue is how we deal with them; in both cases, the choice of weapon and its role in combat, is crystal clear, isn't it? So, let them take the plunge.

  10. Dulith,

    I am with you; we never thought army made what they did in the East. I must confess I was one them.

    They conqured Mavil Aru, after a great battle, followed by Sampur, Vakarai. The army claimed 90% was under its contrlol only to ridiculed by the UNP, and the foreign media. Then came the mortar attack on the ambassadors on landing in Batticoloa. We lost morale and hope; gloom broke out in the country and army was picked on again for raising false hopes. Then came the Thoppigala victory. We were jubilant again.

    Our emotions have never been consistent. So, that is where a correction is needed, not the strategy of the army that is based on experience and intelligence. So, far there is no reason to believe they got everything wrong - far from it.

    This is why some people find the Hon MR so threatening.The point is once this LTTE affair is over some people are scared that all their crooked deals since 1970 will come to light.The reason some want to come to power is so that they can whitewash these details.They should be perseuted and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.The chances are under cross examination they will reveal a mass web of corruption at the uppermost levels during 2000-2005.
    I am just worried for the presidents life.I am also worried for Mr Muralitharan.He is a prime target for the LTTE because he is a symbol of unity of our peoples and also a tamil citizen not to mention a wizz at cricket.

  28. Hey guys thats true SLA using the church as a cover ..in Sampur also they made camps inside the hospital territory..there two doubts that make sure the SLA using the church for undercover

    1. there wasn't any civilian injured in that incident.. hows that possible when a arti fire hits the church; there were only soldiers around there. It says there was Shramadana campaign ; so there must be civilians or the father should be there.

    2. The Father didn't comment in this incident why is that.....? confusing

    Mannar Assistant Diocesan Bishop condemns the LTTE attack at the cathedral

    (Lanka-e-News, 2008 Feb 13, 2.50 PM) Mannar Assistant Diocesan Bishop Rev. Victor Sobei has condemned the LTTE mortar and artillery attack on February 12th morning at St. Sebastian Cathedral in Thalladi, Mannar.

    He says that the firing damaged the church building immensely although civilians and priests wee not harmed.

    Six Army soldiers of Thaladi camp who were clearing the church building on a request from the priests were killed and further ten were injured in the incident. Rev. Sobei expresses the condolence to the Army.

  32. Guys,

    Most of you were pretty downbeat recently. You don't have to be.

    According to my man, the forces are ready to land in Vanni heartland in April. Prabhakaran & Comapany Ltd need more than a miracle to turn things otherwise.

    Yes, we were led to believe by a section of the media that it has reached a stalemate, because forces maintain a dignified silence.

    Sometimes silence can speak louder than words and the above spectacle is a case in point.

  42. friends,
    Our forces use small groups instead of conventional war tactics to avoid large casualties. This method is so far great. However, I guess it may take at least two years, to capture whole north (if we advance, with small groups).

    But one has to remember that TIME is another important factor. As war extends, people may change their mind (this happened in history several times). International pressure may build up. In long run, military, economic, civil targets may be attacked.

    This came into my mind when I saw the headline of pro-UNP site http://www.lankaenews.com/Sinhala/news.php?id=4441

    (LEN seems to be so excited with this!) .

  50. From the previous thread,

    Asithri,

    It is a shame that you had use such foul language to reply to my post. In doing so you have managed to denigrate this great site.

    I never (and have never) said that the capture of Thppigala was a waste! The whole point of my post was to explain the importance of publicising the true losses of the encounters. The MOD is simply treating the sacrifices of these valiant soldiers as spent shell cartridges!

    A death of a soldier is merely the final culmination of the vast array of sacrifices a soldier CHOOSES to make in the name of something greater than themselves. They have left their parents, children, family and everything they have ever known for one chance to make a difference not for themselves but for a nation and a generation yet to be born! Its all well good for us arm-chair generals to comment on the events of the conflict from far away in foreign nations but the sacrifices of these young sons of the nation MUST be publicised for the simple reason that a nation and a people will be indebted to these heroes for generations to come and erecting a monument to an unknown number of casualties after the war is criminal!

    I might be the only person who feels this way but this is my view and I felt obliged to make them known to my fellow bloggers on this great site.

    Thank you

I am also glad that his brother’s explanation of the MIG deal, which he has correctly explained. I and my friends worked tirelessly for his election in god forsaken places in the East and other areas known to us for the very reason that he will have no nonsense approach to the terrorists and the rampant corruption in the state that is impeding the economy and well being of the country and it’s citizens. As far as we are concerned he has not shown much, when we still see the likes of Mervin Silva still at large and recent occurrence that happened out side my friend’s complex in Kandy where his life was to have been threatened by two vehicles deliberately brought there by persons attached to the security of the country. Instead of dealing head on with the culprits,.Mr or his officials have harmed his business by closing the whole road, putting so many people’s livelihoods in jeopardy and sometimes we wonder if he is in charge of the affairs in the country.

  64. It seems now LTTE is now adhereing some new methods to attack the forces. They are getting used to our tactics and war methods. 25KG bomb is the best example. Then they will use some chemical substances against the forces. We must remeber our enemy is still more powerful in military terms and tactics. The worst thing is that they are not governed by any war rules.
    So I think now we need to change the war strategy. Mass scale destruction to the enemy will lead to the end of this war. That kind of destruction has led the 2nd world war to end.

    Can you tell us if these German sanctions will adversely affect the war against the LTTE?

    Also how possible, considering Germany is one of the G8, that others will follow placing sanctions on Sri Lanka?

    They are basically saying "children, no more candy if you don't stop fighting." And say that the war is affecting the lives of the people. It is, but placing sanctions is not going to help either, because we are not your children and we are fighting till the end this time.

    My guess is, this will probably affect our economy, but what to do? Maybe some support from other parts of the world would be necessary.

    This is true. But at the same time at the end of the day, we'll still owe something to someone and when we do and the worlds powers shifts they'll be the new west. Bit off topic there.

    But anyway, it's still scary, because let's admit it, they've got the biggest baddest guns and for all we know they can do pretty much anything with their political muscle.

    Like the invasion of certain countries.

    [LTTE supremo Prabhakaran comes out of bunker only at night

    Colombo, Feb 13: LTTE supremo Vellupillai Prabhakaran lives in a sprawling air-conditioned bunker complex located 30 feet below the ground, and comes up to the surface only at night to avoid detection, a report said on Wednesday.

    Prabhakaran's "extravagant underground bunker is constructed as per his instructions and equipped with air-conditioning and power generators," a newspaper reported, showing a sketch of the alleged bunker mapping.

    The bunker is 30-feet deep and divided into two sectors. It has a tunnel which connects to a similar bunker complex, and the rebel leader's room is tucked way in the lower-most floor has two exits, the sketch shows.

    A typical day for Prabhakaran, who suffers from hypertension, begins at 5 am when he is served a cup of tea without sugar or milk and is briefed about the battle front at 6.30 am, the report said quoting sources.

    "From a powerful radio set Prabhakaran gives instruction to his field commanders though he himself would not talk directly, and asks his confidante to do the talking. If he thinks that communications are not secure, he would insist on communicating through satellite phones at night," it said.

    Not in the best of health, the rebel leader's breakfast is simple and is again accompanied by tea without sugar or milk. "Three doctors attend to Prabhakaran and they continuously monitor his health conditions as he suffers from hypertension. His blood pressure is checked twice during the day," it said.

    For lunch, his aide prepares food without salt which he "doesn't like at all", but is compelled to eat due to his health.

    "He has become a vegetarian because of his illness," it said adding "he has light dinners -- mostly kurakkan (cereal grass whose seed yield somewhat bitter flour) and some gravy". ]

    defencenet is this true?

    "LTTE fired at church: Official"

    How Rayappu Joseph accepts it was LTTE. But strangely the reader is left feeling it was the govt and the army to blame. I have extracted key sentences that does the trick. This is typical of their propaganda which the immature govt propaganda still haven't mastered.

    - there are Army camps surrounding the church
    - not a main parish church but a sub church
    - service has not been held there since the abrogation of the ceasefire agreement.
    - no one had been allowed to visit the church
    - killing of innocent people all over the country, no matter who is behind them

  98. Guys,

    When Thallady church was attacked, the pastor and all the civilians escaped unhurt; six poor soldiers got killed.

    An unholy chain of events on a holy place - the parish priest has some explaining to do other than condemning the incident.

    ReplyDelete
  99. - It was quite strange to request the army to clean their church in a middle of war.

    - While the cleaning was going on, none of the priests were at the location supervising the cleaning.

    - They chose (sacrificed?) a "sub-church" not the main one.

    - The shells fired from 15km away accurately hit the target (Predtermined?).

    They have a track record of making use of the good nature of the soldiers to attack them in return.

    The sinking of a Navy vessel off Mannar shores also similar. They alerted the Navy pretending to need help but blew up the vessel as it got close. The lesson here is, even if you see one of them bleeding and gasping for air somewhere along the road, just ignore.

  100. If that church has been used as a murderous trap to kill the soldiers, then it is OK by me to raise that place to the ground and even God has favoured me with many virtues in life because of my honest and straight forward attiude,after all that place is house meant to murder people, defending ones country against terror. Churches can be rebuilt but not lives lost.

    Now this is the type of news that makes me want to open that $400/bottle Champaign!

    [Sri Lanka military says 475 Rebels killed in last two weeks]

    Feb 13 (CP) Colombo- Sri Lanka military spokesman Brigadiar Udaya Nanayakkara today said within the last two-week period 475 Tamil Tiger rebels were killed in battles between the security forces and the rebels in the North.
    Addressing a media briefing this morning in Colombo the spokesman said in the period between Jan 30th and Feb 12th 475, LTTE terrorists were killed and many more injured. He put security forces losses at thirty nine killed and 178 injured. ]

    Now even if we discount the MOD given 475 figure by 50% (due to certain embellishment that’s bound to creep into MOD counts), I would still celebrate!

    Any RW=LTTE supporting skunks here who are skeptical of what is being declared by MOD should remember how the LTTE KIA counts kept coming in from MOD when the East was being liberated and how they were holding the same skepticism as now. LTTE hardcore lepers too kept denying, denying through their media outlets until it was game over!

    Either way, RW=LTTE pathetic skunks, you can go your way and we patriotic Sri Lankans will go our way! However, do not try to dump a crass piece of horse-shit about LTTE claims or MOD claims in any of the sites that yours truly (and humbly) OaO Asithri visits as he is bound to have a retort for you with facts – basically an unpleasant castration exercise!

Appearing on behalf of Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC), the Attorney pointed out that it was against the Sri Lankan law for the police to collect such particulars or to limit the time of residence. He added that the procedure will be counted as a gross violation of human rights.

    Your pontificating response to me about what war is and how precious a soldier’s life is not needed. What I addressed (albeit with some colorful notions I admit) was your unsubstantiated assertion that Gen. Sarath Fonseka lied about the SLA casualties vis-à-vis the ops that were carried out in the East to liberate that region. What proof have you presented to corroborate that assertion?

    Besides, in capital letters you asked that MOD casualty figures not be believed and then again, although I will concede there may be some embellishments of figures up/down from MOD, where is you evidence that MOD claims cannot be believed wholesale? Where is your substantiations thereof?

    So, once again, I am not interested in you pontifications, but real facts. If you have no facts, then I would say you should shut your bloody gab as otherwise you can come across as a filthy LTTE leper masquerading here as a “concerned Sri Lankan” (and there are many such here and that’s what they do…prattle all day long about war casualties without facts or results! Keep in mind at least MOD can show tangible results – over 65% of LTTE occupied territory captured in two years!)

    Well said mate. MR GOSL is the only one we have had since this war began that decisively started liquidating the LTTE MF’s and although we admire the MR GOSL for it, it nevertheless must be held accountable for the governance of the country and once this war is over soon we will reserve the right to boot it out of power if It is deemed it is not capable in a non-war climate governance of the country (e.g. it must demonstrate it can compete in this global economy we live in today). We must not be blindly into “party-politics” (the curse of our nation! That is the single most cause why we have this LTTE terrorism today!)

  119. Hi,

    Just curiouse how much explosives & sorties it will take to bombard every inch of Wanni?

    Because Germany has said they are going to ask EU & US to stop garment imports from srilanka to push us to stop the war

    I think then the best way is to bombard the entire wanni in 24 hrs kill every one including the animals & win the war within 24 hrs so then these HR violations & dragging war will be finished once for all?

    If Hitlar killed 6 million jews in Germany, aapprox 300,000 lives is wanni will be less as per thier standards

    David did not say that Gen Fonseka lied its just that he did not release the info as far as i remember.If you read his posts he also said that RW the pansy just did not appreciate the strategic victory of the army in thoppi and as a result made these stupid comments about it being just a "jungle".If David ever had a party it is not RW=pansy but the ARMY.
    I hope you have joined with other SLankans with similar interests where you are.This will give you a measure of protection and also allow you do accumulate a large quantity of info easyly.This info you gather will be vital in the future because i hope that people from the forces read this blog.

  152. Guys,

    I live in a European capital. Don't worry too much about the German threat. The Europeans are not renowned for taking bold decisions. If America said the same thingm, then they meant buisness, but not Europeans.

    The Europeans may try that; it has the usual pattern that ranges from subtle diplomacy to mild intimidation. Then they go into quiet mode until the next lobby digging up their ears.

    They will never go as far as imposing full sanctions. This is what happened with Iran and even Sudan. The so-called threat of sanctions is always looming, but never takes place.

    The countries that form the European Union are never a united front. Their foreign policies do not work in unision. If the French and the British see eye to eye on any issue, it is as unrealistic as Mathivathini restoring her lost-virginity to VP, back to her teenage years.

    The problem with the Europeans is their way of looking at things; they look at an issue from all the angles - add them up and they exceed 360 degrees - and that in turn, force them to see a justification in any activity - rape, cannibilism, torture, terrorism, bank robbery. Otherwise, how on earth can anyone account for the presence of nasties by the millions, in their capitals? Any rogue has the potential to go through a strange metamorphosis to become a freedom fighter, when arrived in Europe.

    There is some good thing coming out of this mode of thinking, though. They never take harsh measures against any regime; just diplomatic threats to stir up sentiments of the lobbies, that are many and induce fear among their blind followers. They are partially successful in that. Look at the headlines of UNP-backing media, about sanctions. How silly are these folks!

    European politicians are not living in a real world; the liberal establishment has elevated them, a few inches off the ground. Their own citizens now feel like taking things into their own hands - a coded warning for mob rule.

    These are people who once upon a time blew their tops about the human rights record of China. The very people are now form a stampede in pumping the investments into the very country, they once used to loathe.

    We must follow in China's footsteps folks; stand firm with what you believe in. The threats and fear just crumble; I am sure this is the what MR doing right now. Let's cheer him up.

    Please read our reply to DB on the previous thread. No one is given special treatment.

    Our policy towards racist comments has been tough as you say. And our policy towards personal attacks has not been that strict.

    But it is unfair to call that 'double standards' and claim that we favor certain individuals in the blog.

    Usually a personal attack involves two people. If we deleted the posts of one and let the other continue posting, then that would be double standards. Have we ever done that?

    Besides we do not know any of you personally. What good would it do to us if we have 'favorites' here?

    Anyway we never intended to be a morale police when we started DefenceNet. We merely wanted to give out information, not to moderate a forum filled with unwanted comments.

    It is sad that the situation has come to this.

    We would have done that long ago if we could. Unfortunately blogger has its limitations.

  160. Defencenet:

    Then pls inform participants, even regularly, to avoid comments which deviate from the main focus.

    I see an improvement in commenting these days than about 2-3 weeks ago. Comments what we currently having is I think at an acceptable level. although I wish if those also to diminish if possible.

  161. slpower,

    The following text is visible above the comment box so that everyone can see that every time they post:

    "Comments with racist remarks, personal attacks and misinformation will be deleted. Replying to any such comment will only encourage the saboteurs to post more. We request all our readers to ignore such postings and continue the discussion without diverting from the theme of the blog."

    yes there has been some improvement. But there is room for lots more in that regard.

    Please don’t give credit to various fringe and insignificant committees for Clintons refusing or refunding ltte money. It was a much formal approach that persuaded them to change their stand and let them take credit for it and we know who or what persuaded them, which we can’t reveal at the moment.

  164. Both "Shyam" and "Renegade" are the same.

    This LTTE sh*thead earlier came in the name of Rifard into this forum, fishing for SLDF info.

    Still, this LTTE sh*thead doing the same thing asking questions about SLDF confidential information.

    Beware of this Shemale.

  168. Renegade,

    You nearly started a verbal duel with me, while responding to one of my posts, in the previous thread; you just challenged a tiny piece of text, taken out of context and literally took the whole argument off the track - completely irrlevant direction on middleast politics. The post was about the efficiecny of air attack by the Israeli Air Force before Arial Sharon went into a coma.

    In the presence of facts, you backed down. It was just emotional ha hoo followed by self-cooling.

    So, your behaviour is little-less-than that of a gentleman too.

    You cannot group theboss, Shyam and the likes as sensible folks; they are outright racists and shockingly ignorant. Their brand of nationalism is on a par with Nazism and we all know what it got in the end - endless humiliation for the German nation on a perpetual scale.

    There were two occasions where the administrator did not answer two of my questions; may be, he didn't see them or he didn't have access to a computer when he saw them. They are perfectly valid reasons and do not amount to cold-shouldering. However, if it is not the case, he can make it clear why it was a deliberate act, rather than an accident.

    On principle, I always reply those who comment on my posts; there are guys who answer my questions eagerly as soon as they have the answers and I appreciate that very much. There are guys, who just can't stand a different opinion and just try to intimidate you by behaving as thugs; I know the language they understand and they have been dealt with accordingly.

    We must respect the questions of others; we should not laugh at the command of English, if someone makes mistakes in this foreign language. We must encourage them to contribute, not ridicule them. The same does not apply to people who think they know better than most.

    So, the demand of equal treatment for theboss, Shyam & Co is not realistic; they are just here to provoke; if they open a can of worms, I spray them with the right antidote - if I can find a few minutes of course. I am proud of putting my hand up and to admit being a bad guy with a colourful language, if the circumstances stimulate me for that. Most Sri lankans love to be branded as whiter-than-white and I chose to be different.

    So, renegade watch your step, mate.

  169. good question B#1

    i was just going to ask :)

    army.lk:

    SRI LANKA AIR FORCE fighter craft in another surprise aerial attack on one of the major LTTE military bases in PURAVILKULAM, northeast of VISHWAMADUKULAM, MULLAITHIVU this morning (14) at about 10.30 a.m. destroyed the LTTE’s “Radha” Military Base completely, pilots confirmed.

    The air sortie conducted on receipt of precise intelligence and information came in the wake of a series of setbacks being meted out to terrorists in WANNI and MANNAR sectors. Air Force pilots confirmed the destruction of this major military base as a result of the aerial attacks.

    "What is this Radha base???"

    It's an LTTE training and logistics base. Some times visited by senior cadres as per MI.

    qurious,
    "There were two occasions where the administrator did not answer two of my questions; may be, he didn't see them or he didn't have access to a computer when he saw them."

    Apologies mate. Wasn't intentional. What were the questions that were ignored?

    lkdood,
    People use multiple accounts to either back their own theory (while showing that they have support from the 'public') or merely to disrupt the blog.

  172. theboss, Shyam and the likes,

    What did I say to you yesterday - a catalogue of surprises by the SLAF. This is the first one.

    Since you have little brains, please note, a catalogue by definition, is referring to a collection, not just one!!!!
