LTTE warns Security Forces to stop East killings

[TamilNet, Monday, 05 July 2004, 19:50 GMT]
"Once more, fully aware of our people's desire for peace, we emphasise our continued commitment to the Memorandum of Understanding. We also want to express in no uncertain terms that if war is thrust on us, we are prepared to respond," said a press release issued by the LTTE's Political Division of Batticaloa-Amparai, following two shooting incidents in Batticaloa Monday morning.

Excerpts from the press release follow:

"On 5 July 9.15am Batticaloa Town Head of Political Wing, Mr.Senathirajah and Mr.Nilan were shot by unknown gunmen using handguns while they were riding a motorbike through Sri Lanka Army controlled Arasady Junction. Both have been admitted to the Batticaloa Teaching Hospital and are being treated.

"Around 10am, in another shooting incident near Vantharumoolai Catholic Church, LTTE cadre Murinchan was killed and LTTE fighter Rosan wwas injured. Both were riding in a motorbike from Sittandy to Chenkalady when gunmen following in another motorbike shot at the LTTE cadres from behind. Rosan is receiving treatment for his gunshot wounds.

"Both incidents took place in SLA controlled areas.

"We have told the SLA officers several times during phone converstions and during discussions that stopping killings in the east is in SLA's hands. SLA has clearly ignored our notices.

"The killings clearly indicate that Security Forces are intent on undermining the MoU and are creating conditions for war. The actions of Security Forces are gross violations of the CeaseFire Agreement and we condemn these actions.
