LTTE cadre killed in Panichchankerni - Elilan

[TamilNet, Thursday, 06 April 2006, 15:07 GMT]
A Liberation Tigers cadre, Lt. Arulanantham, was killed Wednesday evening by artillery fire from Sri Lanka Army position in Mankerni, Trincomalee District Political Head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), S. Elilan, said in a letter to Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) Thursday. The artillery fire was used by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) when the Tiger cadres counter attacked a group of 40 armed men who launched an attack on a LTTE sentry post in Panichchankerni. Two paramilitary cadres were wounded according to eyewitnesses in Kirimichchai on Wednesday.

Sri Lanka Army troopers also took part in the 40 member attack group, alleged Mr. Elilan in his letter to the SLMM.

The SLA engagement in the attack constituted a grave violation of the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA), Ellian writes.

The LTTE Political Head of Trincomalee accused the SLA of engaging in repeated offensive operations against the Tigers in the region.
