Sri Lanka: Terror Chief Driven To His Bunker

Archives

December 22, 2007: The army continues to have success destroying parts of the LTTE front line. In particular, the LTTE territory along the northwest coast of Sri Lanka has been the scene of successful attacks each week, and sometimes daily. This pressure has apparently made it difficult for the LTTE to get terrorist teams past the army lines and into government held Sri Lanka (which is about 95 percent of the country.) Despite suffering defeats for over a year, the LTTE still refuses to negotiate, and clings to the hope that something will turn around their situation, and get them a partition of the island.

An air force bomb apparently injured LTTE leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran, last month. Military electronic warfare units have been able to track senior LTTE officials, and have killed or wounded a few of them because of this. LTTE insiders report that Prabhakaran spends most of his time in a bunker that is 40 feet underground.
