 Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities are hastily converting the Heroes Resting Homes where Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) war heroes are buried in Vanni main land and Jaffna peninsula, to obliterate all traces of them and to prevent their dear and near ones visiting the tombs in fond memory, sources in Jaffna said. Another reason for the demolishing of the Heroes Resting Homes (HRH) is to prevent people from South seeing them when visiting North, the sources added.

Similarly, SLA soldiers are engaged in demolishing Kodikaamam HRH in Thenmaraadchi and building a base.

The main road to Koappaay HRH is closed to public use and SLA sentries are posted to guard the area.

In Vanni main land, the Aalangku’lm HRH has been razed to the ground and a key base of the 63rd Division has been built on the same location.

The other Heroes Resting Homes in Vanni including Visuvamadu have met the same fate and SLA authorities are busily engaged in converting them into important bases.
