Tigers will never achieve Eelam dream - Surrendered LTTE cadre

LTTE tired of fighting trained Government troops:

An LTTE cadre who surrendered to the Forces, said senior LTTEers operating from the rear of their defences send new recruits to the front as canon fodder.

“Tigers are not capable of resisting attacks by the troops. LTTE members are tired of fighting well-trained Government troops. They are now withdrawing. Their Eelam dream is confined only to a dream. They will never achieve it.” he said.

“I was living with my parents, brother and three sisters. I was abducted by the LTTE in 2006 at the age of 19 when I was going to the Madhu Shrine with my family. The LTTE provide me training for two months and then sent me to the Welioya front. A large number of females are deployed in the LTTE defence lines.

“They have been forced to cut their hair short to avoid being identified. Those LTTE girls long to go to Security Forces-held areas with their parents and lead a peaceful life under the troops.” he said.

“The best thing the LTTE can do for the Tamil population now is to lay down arms and select the peace path. The Army looks after me well.

“The LTTE will never succeed in this war. I request all our misguided members to surrender to any Security Forces camp, leaving the LTTE,” he said.
