During the last few years of their offensive against the LTTE (Tamil Tigers), the Sri Lankan army committed many war crimes and crimes against humanity. Of course, Sri Lankan government denies any such allegations but more and more evidence surfaces to prove that things like summary executions of anyone Tamil, including civilians and systematic rape of Tamil women really took place.
It must be said, that even though Sri Lankan army clearly committed heinous crimes in their war against LTTE, the Tamil Tigers were not any less heinous in what they did. There was a lot of wrongdoing on behalf of both, but the army had an advantage of (at the time) international support because Tamil Tigers were considered a terrorist organization by many countries.
The unrest and tensions with ongoing killings and rapes on both sides lasted for over a quarter of century when Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa made a plea to eliminate the LTTE once and for all and to not stop until they’re done for. Massive military campaign was launched during which rapes documented in these photos took place.
For those who would like to learn more about alleged atrocities, including systematic rape perpetrated on the Tamil population by the Sri Lankan military during the offensive against the LTTE, here’s the documentary titled “Sri Lanka – Killing Fields” by Channel 4 UK. It’s split into 3 separate videos, the last one has some graphic footage:
