Attack at Kadiraveli was after thorough verification of facts - Defence Spokesman

The government reiterates that it launched retaliatory attack at Kadiraveli in Batticaloa after thoroughly verifying the facts. The government's defence spokesman Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said the Army has launched a retaliatory attack at Kadiraveli in Batticaloa after verifying facts obtained through RADAR plots.

28 people were killed and 74 others were injured in the attack. The Minister further said that the LTTE terrorists launching attacks at the security forces are shielding themselves in the areas where there are displaced persons.

The government is fully committed to the security of the displaced and the ordinary civilians. The minister added that the foreign ministry yesterday enlightened the co-chairmen of the Tokyo donor conference. The SLMM is also conducting inquiry on this regard.

The minister also revealed that 600 displaced persons had arrived to the government control areas from Kadiraveli and Verugal.
