The construction materials are kept in the custody of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) bases in Jaffna town.

The Tamil residents in the areas near Jaffna Fort and Ma’nyiam-thoaddam had been uprooted due to SLA offensives and their lands are to be settled with the Sinhala families claiming resettlement in Jaffna.

In Trincomalee too Sinhala families have been settled on lands belonging to Tamils by Sri Lanka government, evicting the Tamil families.

193 Sinhala families had arrived in Jaffna 08 October seeking resettlement in Jaffna claiming that their families had lived in Jaffna before 1983. They are occupying the old Jaffna Railway Station premises displacing the families of uprooted families from Valikaamam North Sri Lanka Army (SLA) High Security Zone (HSZ) who had been staying there.
