Sri Lankan Defence Forces faught their way into the enclave within which the LTTE leaders had a large number of tamil civillians closely in a human shield booby trapped with a large quantity of explosives including phosporous incendiaries.
Thousands of civillians set free by the SL Forces are seen moving towards government controlled areas and away from the combat zone still littered with a large number of dead bodies and possibly unexploded ordnance. Some of the top LTTE leaders' families have surrendered to the SLDF as well.
Though not yet officially confirmed, reliable sources report the SLDF capturing dead bodies of the LTTE leadership which are difficult to be identified. A formal announcement is awaited when Sri Lankan parliament meets on Tuesday.

Currently the SLAF engages in med-evac and logistics operations conducted using helicopters and the heavy lifters only. Except for an unsuccessful incident involving a couple of shoulder launched missiles fired by the LTTE targetting two medevac choppers from among the civillians in the safe zone, the SLAF is in for a boring rest of the war it seems.
The LTTE were unable to acquire sophisticated anti-aircraft weaponry during the time of the Bush administration, but the playing field has since then appears to be changing gradually. How the LTTE managed to acquire these weapons would be interesting to know for the world's military intelligence, for it quite clearly shows a dangerous turn of events.

As Sri Lankans, we are not only guilty of failing to hold government officials accountable for their misdeeds, we have also for decades been silent spectators to the unending death and destruction in our country caused by the LTTE, conveniently blaming the outcome on politicians, our own karma and everyone else but our selves.
If as Sri Lankans, you are ready to do something about it, please visit the following link and sign the petition which directs the Sri Lankan government to continue with all necessary means to eradicate terrorism from our motherland, irrespective of anyone else' views.
