List of attacks on civilians attributed to Sri Lankan government forces

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of attacks on civilians attributed to armed groups under the control of the Sri Lankan government. Which includes the Sri Lankan Army, Sri Lankan Navy, Sri Lankan Air Force, Sri Lankan Police Service, state organised mobs and paramilitary groups (Home Guards, EPDP, PLOTE, TMVP, Ukussa, Black Cats etc.). This list does not contain assassinations which are listed in a separate article.

The Sri Lankan Armed Forces which was almost exclusively made up of Sinhalese[1][2][3][4] ethnicity during 30 year old Sri Lankan Civil War and the two JVP insurrections, has engaged in several counts of violence against civilians including numerous instances of civilian massacres, ethnic cleansing, pogroms, forced disappearances, sexual violence, destruction of property and assassination of civil leaders.[5] Incidents of torture, extra judicial killings and sexual violence have also persisted in the post war period especially against Tamils and other ethnic and sexual minorities.[6][7][8][9]

Sri Lanka has also experienced attacks against civilians attributed to non state actors, such as the List of attacks attributed to the LTTE and the List of attacks on civilians attributed to the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna.
