Colombo steps up bombardment on Vanni
Sri Lanka's ongoing military campaign has reached a genocidal proportion with the deliberate targeting of civilian
areas aimed at driving the civilians out of the LTTE held regions. The region has been crippled by Gaza style economic, medical, food and fuel blockade for over one year with minimal or no international condemnation.
Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers attacked Saturday a coastal area in Mullaiththeevu where thousands of civilians, recently displaced, had established temporary shelters. The bombers dropped eight bombs on fishing huts and boats, lighting up the stretch using para lights, causing panic among the refugees and the fishermen engaged in fishing at 4:55 a.m. The bombers arrived again at 5:35 to bomb the area with 8 eight more bombs, targeting the temporary shelters of refugees. The SLAF bombers attacked Mullaiththeevu and Ki'linochchi five times within four hours in the morning. Meanwhile, the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) launched an artillery barrage from all the frontiers of Vanni from 4:20 a.m. till 5:50 a.m.
