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
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.
