    The attack comes as fighting in the island's two-decade civil war continues to escalate. The conflict between Sri Lanka's government and the island nation's Tamil minority has killed around 68,000 people since 1983.
     
    The airport was attacked by Tamil Tigers in July 2001, who destroyed six civilian jets after wrecking more than a dozen military aircraft at the adjoining airbase.
