Summary About LTTE
LTTE or Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam also known as Tamil Tigers is a now-defunct militant organisation that was based in northern Sri Lanka. Founded in May 1976 by Velupillai Prabhakaran, it waged a secessionist nationalist insurgency to create an monoethnic, independent state in the north and east of Sri Lanka for Tamil people. This campaign led to the Sri Lankan Civil War, which ran from 1983 until 2009.
