Does IC know no human dignity of civilians, asks a doctor in Vanni

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 January 2009, 11:36 GMT]
"The world is silently witnessing one of the worst massacres of helpless civilians in contemporary times. These civilians know no crime other than not knowing where to go. While the genocidal military of the Colombo government is on the killing spree, India and the international community sadistically expect the civilians to come running out into the hands of their killers. Either way they expect them to perish," a doctor, while attending casualties at the Udaiyaarkaddu hospital, said on Monday.

"The excuse of LTTE using civilians a human shield is a farce," the doctor said.

"The current phase of war is not for the LTTE since the SL government already claimed 95 percent victory. It is now only a collective punishment meted out to civilians for showing faith all these days to their fighters."

"Those of the international community who shed crocodile tears for civilians could very well reach out to the suffering civilians. They are not going to be prevented by anyone other than Colombo’s marauding army," he further said urging the ICRC and other medical organisations such as Doctors Without Borders to urgently reach out the civilians to help them.

"We need urgent help to transport the wounded. Blood is a top priority. We need medicines, we need doctors," the doctor who did not wish to be named told TamilNet.
