Tigers Air Strike


Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam have for the first time in their history of more than 30 years have made an air strike killing 3 and injuring more than a dozen.

LTTE is said to have formed Tamil Elam Air Force 9 years back and owns few light combat aircrafts.

LTTE was formed in early 1970’s to secure a separate state for majority tamil areas in the north and east.More than 68,000 people have been killed and many more forced to flee since 1983 due to the armed struggle of LTTE leaving Sri Lanka to be embroiled in a civil war.

Goverment of Sri Lanka and other politicians have often paid high price in their struggle against LTTE.LTTE has carried high profile assasinations including that of late Prime Minister of Indai, Mr.Rajeev Gandhi.
