'Ellalan Force', a shady identity in which name terror threats come from time to time in Colombo as well as in Jaffna, on Monday, claimed responsibility for the recent attacks on "transport vehicles" and said the attacks were "stern replies" to four Sri Lankan attacks, an aerial bombardment and three LRRP (also known as DPU) Claymore attacks, in which 26 Tamil civilians were killed.

The statement emailed to media further read that the 'Ellalan Force' was able to blast bombs despite heavy security arrangements made by the government.

"The Sinhalese must understand situation clearly and think about why the 'Ellalan Force' continue their attacks," the statement titled 'A Stern Warning of Revenge,' said.

The statement went on to say that the only way to stop such attacks was stopping attacks on Tamil innocent civilians.
