Despite the on-going talk of a negotiated settlement, all indications were moving in the direction of a resumption of fighting. All through 2006 there were growing signs of rising levels of violence that could only lead to an open war. Whether it was the right to sea of the Sea Tigers or the dispute over water in Trincomalee, each side was testing the other by provocative actions that included violations of the ceasefire agreement. Closure of the A-9 Highway by the government starved Jaffna of supplies. An increase in the number of attacks on the civilians— for many of which the security forces or the paramilitaries were responsible— was setting the pace for further escalation. The international community was being rather selective in condemning many of the transgressions—and that was not helping either.
