i dont think it is right to call it a massive blast . pics on tv indicate it was fairly small. there is not even much damage to surface of the road where it exploded outside airforce headquarters( probably after being detected)

as for ltte terrorists, they will explode bombs, in the same way that serial killers kill, even when they are reduced to handful. they and their actions should be treated just like other killers. nothing more . that is they should not be given any political weight whatsoever
