Explosion near lake house seems to be targeting the Air Chief, aprently he passed that place 3 min in advance, lucky him!

The war is no longer in the North, so be prepared in the south as well. Maybe time to pack the tamils living in the South to the Norht again. Killing the Minister is yet the begining it seems.
