LTTE COVERT RENDEZVOUS STATION WHERE LEADERS USED TO MEET HAS BEEN BOMBED BY THE AIRFORCE, IT SAYS

By Walter Jayawardhana

A secret rendezvous station frequented by some top leaders of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam West of Vishwamadu Kulam in the Tamil Tiger dominated area in the North has been bombed , the Sri Lanka Air Force said.

“Air Force fighter jets engaged a secret rendezvous place of LTTE kingpins located in the West of Visuamadu Kulam in Mullaittiuvu around 9.20, this morning (April 2)”, Air Force spokesman said
Air Force Spokesperson Wing Commander Andrew Wijesooriya said ,that the fighter pilots have confirmed the target was accurately hit. However, he said that it is too early to assess the damage to the terrorists in the air raid.

“Meanwhile, defence officials said that the target is of strategic value, as its whereabouts was only known to those in the inner circles of the LTTE chief. The sources said that the target consist of a rendezvous place and a secret passage frequently used by LTTE kingpins including their leader himself,” defence website said .

It further commented: “Defence observers say that recent trend in air raids shows a significant enhancement in defence surveillance capabilities as majority of the targets have been LTTE's covert locations rather than overt camps. They are in the view that exploited and demoralized LTTE cadres and people, tired of terrorist rule in the Wanni region might have open new sources of information flow to the military.”

The website further said until the bombing took place the LTTE covert station was kept under constant surveillance.
