US Pacific Command to build hospitals in the North through Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Thursday, 01 December 2011, 12:08 GMT]
Directly treating ‘development’ as a military strategy to match with the Sri Lankan model, the US Pacific Command has decided to re-build four hospitals in the north at Oddusuddaan in the Mulaiththeevu district and at Muzhankaavil, Poonakari and Pazhai in the Ki’linochchi district. While the US Pacific Command will be providing the grant assistance, the SL government will make available Rs. 23 million to meet the levies, Colombo media reports said. Except Pazhai, the other three places have major military bases and cantonments of occupying Sri Lanka.

The US government also has announced that it will upgrade health care facilities in the East.

During the war, India was running a military hospital at Pulmoaddai, located at the border of northern and eastern provinces and in a monitoring distance from the war front.
