Like the Ariana Grande pop concert, small children were deliberately targeted. Remember that when you see Democrats obfuscate, scrub and refer to “Easter worshippers.” They are the enemy. A stock of more than 150 gelatnite (explosives) sticks, ISIS uniforms, a large stock of metal balls, a drone, a suspicious van and a laptop were recovered during a search operation in Sri Lanka today.

Police said the objects were detected based on information received by the State Intelligence Service.

Less than a week after the Easter Sunday attack that killed more than 300 people of which ISIS claimed responsibility for, officers are now embroiled in a deadly shootout between a suspected terror group in the Ampara District of Eastern Province, Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka news agency Nidahasa News confirmed the incident is ongoing. A witness added that the army is also on the scene and that the explosion was caused by suspects “blowing themselves up” during the police shootout resulting in officers seizing ISIS uniforms and other paraphernialia.

Witnesses flocked to social media to share their shock at the confrontation.
One said: “Thanks God. I think the Police has caught the right spot in Kalmunai. Hope now the situation is under control.”
Another, confirming the incident, added: “A shootout between police and a group reported during a search operation carried out at Sainthamarudu in Kalmunai a short while ago.”
Other commenters said the shootout happened in a suspected bomb factory, which had been disguised as a house.
The number of injuries is yet to be confirmed.
Another Twitter user said: “An exchange of gunfire reported between security forces & another group during an operation in Sainda-Marudu area in #Kalmunai. #ISIS.”
It is unknown if the group involved are members of the Islamic State terror group.
Heartbroken Ben Nicholson confirmed that wife Anita, 42, son Alex, 14, and daughter Annabel, 11, were among those killed in the co-ordinated suicide bombings by the radical Islamist group in churches and hotels on Easter Sunday.
The family of Britons, originally from Essex, were having breakfast when one of the suicide bombers entered their hotel. Among the toll were eight Britons including the Nicholsons and a decorated firefighter Billy Harrop along with his wife Sally.
