Sri Lanka Army (SLN) occupying Jaffna peninsula has begun constructing permanent sentry posts and mini camps on the main junctions along the key roads in Jaffna peninsula in haste, sources said. Meanwhile, the SLA soldiers posted inside Jaffna Teaching Hospital and around it refuse to withdraw despite the requests of hospital administration, hospital sources said. Civil society circles in Jaffna said that SLA intends to keep Jaffna peninsula in its tight grip and is engaged in strengthening its presence in strategic places.
