Army denies pro-LTTE report
The Army yesterday denied an online pro-LTTE propaganda report of a
‘terrorist attack on a military convoy’ last Thursday as killing five
personnel while injuring a senior officer.
According to a pro-terrorist online portal, a military convoy had
come under a possible ‘LTTE terrorist attack’ deep inside the Habarana
jungle enclave. A spokesman for the Army said the story was a complete
fabrication and no such incident had taken place.
Defence observers said this was another fabrication of LTTE
propagandists irked by the magnitude of development and economic
progress in the North and the East.
