LTTE’s first ever air strike at the Sri Lankan air base has surprised the world, especially India. Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse had said after the attack that the growing military power of LTTE is not just a threat to Sri Lanka but to rest of the world too, particularly for South Asia region.
India has started taking preventive steps to guard sensitive places in South India from LTTE’s reach. The government of India has decided to set up radar in southern part of India to restrict such kind of attack in Indian part of the subcontinent too.
Now, Sri Lankan Foreign Secretary Dr Palitha Kohona has disclosed that the Sri Lankan government’s assessment says that the LTTE has acquired the capability to target India’s nuclear reactors in the South from the air.
He has told to the government of India that the LTTE has gained more strength and it has showed its growing air power in recent attack at Sri Lankan air base.
According to the reports, the Indian defence administration has started taking necessary steps to guard India’s top strategic facilities that are located in different parts of the Southern part of the country.
The Indian Air Force has been installed mobile radar at different places in South India. The Indian Air Force would be in the charge of the operations of the radar an IAF commander would supervise the control and monitor the skies and any threat coming from southern side of the sub continent.
