SLA fortifies key positions in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 06 January 2008, 14:36 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troops, deployed in large numbers, are constructing new and permanent sentry points along key roads in Jaffna peninsula since Friday. With the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) ending on January 16, SLA in Jaffna, fearing attacks by Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), is strengthening security arrangements in the sentry posts and camps, sources in Jaffna said.

New sentry posts and permanent security positions are being built along the key roads in Jaffna peninsula including Kandy road, Main road, and the roads from Jaffna to Point Pedro, Kaangkeasanththu’rai and Palaali.

Sand bags are being piled around the sentry posts and trenches are being dug near them in an attempt to strengthen the sentries.

SLA troops in large numbers are deployed in and around the strategic security positions in Jaffna peninsula, according to sources in Jaffna.
