    The objective of this report is to document the perilous situation of civilians due to the Sri Lankan Government’s indiscriminate bombardment on the civilian settlements and so called ‘safety zones’ in northern part of Sri Lanka. The “War Without Witness” try to gather as much as first hand verified information in this report and it fears that the situation may be far worse than what we realise due to lack of communication, threat posed to journalists & human rights activists and the facilities exist on the ground. Since the Government of Sri Lanka has banned access for all the Independent monitors, Humanitarian Workers including UN and the media, the combat zone is being isolated from the out side world and a war is waged by the Government of Sri Lanka without witness.

    > The Sri Lankan Government established so called “Safe Zones” in Vanni for the civilians to move in for their security. The so called safe zone has subsequently been subjected to bombardment leading to civilian casualties. Photographic and Video evidences of the indiscriminate bombardment on the “Safe Zone” by the Sri Lankan Government Armed Forces and its consequences are documented by ‘War Without Witness’ in Annex 01 and
