Attack in front of Air Force camp, Slave Island

Desperate LTTE blasted a bomb in front of Air Force camp, Slave Island. Attack has damaged a Moratuwa-Colombo plying civilian bus. The attack was launched by a suicide bomber on a motorcycle. 2 killed 32 injured, 3 very seriously.

Heavy security was in place in Colombo, suburbs and main cities today following intelligence warnings. Military Intelligence recently uncovered LTTE plans of launching random suicide attacks targeting even civilians since they are unable to breach the security of VVIPs.

Hundreds of people took to the streets in Trishaws, vans etc carrying the Lion Flag celebrating the capture of Kilinochchi today as President Mahinda Rajapakse and the Army Commander addressed the nation live on National TV.

Public need to be very vigilant despite celebrations..

SLDF need to avoid another 83 from 'moda choone sinhala chandiyas'.

If LTTE is vacating EPS troops (specially in 58) should expect massive counter attacks.

MD

Do you when those calculations were done? Anyway, I think both the large LTTE runaways are very close to troops.

New UNP agents are attempting to flood DW with panic over a "non-event".

Side Effect said...

there was a meeting[where the MR declared the victory at kili] at the old parliament and the president together with the tri-forces commanders were there. so the AF commander could be the target :-?

Diaspora can now say bye bye Kilinochchi with 'little' satisfaction and pleasure.. 1 civilian killed and 30 injured is not bad for an intelligent suicide bomber.. eh

In said...

Is it true that few others LTTE carders ran into AF HQ with the blast and attack... and another small blast in side HQ?

have a nice week end, travel safe guys.

Peter the LTTE terrorist,

"New UNP agents are attempting to flood DW with panic over a "non-event."

I am very glad that you speak your terrorist mind freely. We always knew that deliberately killing dozens of innocent civilians in bus bombs is a non-event for terrorists like you. Despite your bogus face elsewhere, you are just a racist terrorist scum who can rejoice deliberately killing innocent civilians.

Peter said...

Patriots,

Don't allow green elements to hijack DW and use it to spread stories about bus bombings and roaming lorries.

This is the time to celebrate the end of LTTE.

Remaining portion of "peelam" is smaller than Thoppigala.

-SF

Also, -2.5km to kilinochchi. He he
(we have moved another 2.5km from kili)

Bye bye sakkilinochchi! welcome kilinochchi!!

Ninja said...

Using a suicide bomber just to divert propaganda... what an achievement after a 30 years 'libertarian struggle' ? Anyway, good news for diaspora.. Let's expect more of this kind..

Observer said...

In,

Not True !

Vigilante said...

ITN showed how SLA raised the Sri Lankan flag in Killinochchi.

LTTE is running and SLA guys gave them a hoot...

Finally, people are releasing their frustrations and relief from oppression.

"Hundreds of people took to the streets in Trishaws, vans etc carrying the Lion Flag celebrating the capture of Kilinochchi today as President Mahinda Rajapakse and the Army Commander addressed the nation live on National TV."

Vigilante said...

How come SLA says, "MOTHER OF ALL BATTLES" is over?

This reminds me President Bushe's statement regarding ending of major operations against Iraqi forces in 2003. We know what happened after that?

This is not good in my opinion.

There is no time to waste.

Take over whole Wanni, that is my wish. Otherwise LTTE counter attacks will kill our boys.

PRABHA THAMBI'S UTOPIAN KILINOCHCHI ‘EELAM’ CAPITAL FALLS: "MOTHER OF ALL BATTLES" IS OVER

KILINOCHCHI: MEGALOMANIAC LTTE Prabhakaran's utopian ‘Eelam’ capital, KILINOCHCHI, for which, he, for over three decades, mercilessly butchered thousands of monks, clergy, breast-feeding infants, intellectuals, statesmen, including a Sri Lankan President and an Indian Premier, military.....

ReallyCold said...

Vigilante, that is what I have been saying too.

There is propaganda, trash talk for the enemy and I understand that.

However this is a war victory and we need to be humble and conquer the next post.

We have to do that (at least some major damage) before Jan 21st just lie what Israeli's doing before Obama takes his office.
