SLA units in NorthEast to be strengthened

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 05 October 2010, 03:05 GMT]
Moves are underway to restructure the Army before January 1st, 2011, the Lankadeepa newspaper said quoting Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Commander Jagath Jayasuriya at a function held in Anuradhapura to commemorate the army’s 62st anniversary. Special military units will be appointed in every district following the restructuring of the military, according to Jayasuriya. All security forces units in the north and east will also be strengthened in the coming months as part of the overhaul, the Commander added.

Jayasuriya also said that the special police units will be taken under the wing of the army once the restructuring is completed.

A new battalion will also be set up, namely the 12th battalion which will be tasked for the security in Hambantota, and two more special battalions for the security in Matara and Galle districts.

These three battalions will be known as a southern battalion, the SLA Commander said.
