Chronology of LTTE Tamil Tiger Atrocities since June 2005

LTTE Tamil Tiger Terrorists continue to assassinate civilians, members of the rival political parties and security personnel under the banner of cease-fire agreement (CFA).

Politically motivated killings, arbitrary arrests, harassments, abductions, detentions, torture, extortions, intimidations, use of children as child soldiers, disappearances and conscriptions are some of the many fundamental right violations of the LTTE (so-called Liberation Tigers of Tamil eelam). The Tamil People who had been enjoying all the democratic and human rights in those areas have now been deprived of many of their basic rights and hardly one day passes without at least one person getting killed in these areas. The terrorist outfit is continuing its terror campaign freely by eliminating their opponents including Tamils with the intension of carving out a separate fascist state. Read more………

Chronology of Suicide Bomb Attacks by Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka

LTTE Tamil Tiger Terrorists continue to assassinate civilians, members of the opposition political parties and security personnel under the banner of cease-fire agreement (CFA). This is a record since 24 June 2005, since signing the Joint Mechanism (JM).

Under the Banner of Cease-fire Agreement for Eelam War IV.......

Media Release - Tamil Tiger Terrorist Attacks Heighten Tensions In Sri Lanka - The Tamil Tiger Terrorists have carried out 76 separate attacks during the last six weeks from December 2, 2005 to January 14, 2006 mainly targeting Sri Lanka’s security forces causing the death of 78 service personnel and further injuring 107 others.  The civilian casualties in the same period numbered 36 killed and 30 injured, most of whom are Tamils considered political dissidents by the LTTE, whilst 8 Moslems and 2 Sinhalese are amongst those gunned down.   The details of the incidents could be viewed at the following website, the url for which is The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) has as usual denied responsibility for the attacks on the armed services, claiming that it is the work of disgruntled civilians demonstrating their anger against the security forces.  These denials have been totally rejected as the civilians would not be resorting to claymore mine attacks nor would they have explosives laden boats for suicide attacks at sea.  However, it is true that a section of the civilians including students have been instigated to attack the security forces with grenades given to them by the LTTE, and such civilians used as human shields for armed attacks by the terrorist cadres on military checkpoints and camps with the specific intention of provoking retaliatory attacks that would result in civilian casualties. The LTTE has violated the Ceasefire Accord (CFA) from the day they signed it in February 2002, with the total violations exceeding 7000 up to now, including the killing of over 550 civilians and security forces personnel, abduction and forced conscription of over 3500 children, and a host of human rights abuses such as torture, assaults, threats, extortion. etc., as reported on by the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission, UNICEF and Human Rights Watch. ..... The international community should realize that they cannot be selective in the treatment of terrorists, and the resulting destabilization in any region will have a debilitating impact on other regions as well (Full Media Release in SPUR).
