Colombo waging shadow war, says LTTE's official organ

[TamilNet, Sunday, 03 April 2005, 07:48 GMT]
"The Sinhala government should come forward immediately to stop waging the shadow war against the Liberation Tigers. Otherwise nothing can prevent it from turning into a real war", said the LTTE’s official organ 'Viduthalai Pulihal' in its latest issue. "The sacrificial lambs of this shadow war are penned in Sri Lankan army camps. Weapons for murder are given to them by the Sri Lankan military. The Sinhala regime is not interested in the peace process and it has no faith in a political settlement (to the ethnic conflict). It has interest and faith only in war", the paper said in its lead story.

Shadow War

"The shadow war which targets the military strength and patience of the Liberation Tigers is part of a politico-military design the Sinhala government has drawn up against the LTTE. Sinhala armed forces are using the Polannaruwa district as the staging ground for this secret war against the Tigers", the paper said.

The LTTE’s official organ charged that Sri Lanka army soldiers were behind the assassinations of some of Liberation Tigers in the east.
