Army commander visits Jaffna

Army Commander General Sarath Fonseka, yesterday made his first visit to Jaffna Security Forces Headquarters after the successful completion of military operations to eliminate LTTE terrorism, the Army Headquarters announced yesterday. The Army Commander was received by Commander Security Forces Headquarters Jaffna Major General Mendaka Samarasinghe and was accorded a Guard Turnout and Guard of Honour at the Security Forces Headquarters, according to military traditions.

Both honours were accorded to their visiting military chief by 8 Sri Lanka Sinha Regiment (8 SLSR) troops. General Sarath Fonseka after inspection of the parade received the salute from the special dais, erected for the purpose.

He also addressed both officers and other ranks separately and spoke high of their contribution, dedication and commitment during the peak of LTTE terrorism and its culmination.

Highlighting the importance of all-time preparedness, conduct of humanitarian services, de-mining, continued training for soldiers, etc General Fonseka reminded that better training sessions would now remain available in the future and it would, in his opinion enormously help soldiers receive their career promotions. During his meeting with 51,52,55 Division General Officers Commanding, field officers and Task Force Commanders, General Sarath Fonseka received a comprehensive update on the prevailing security concerns in the peninsula. He also assessed possible future scenarios and stressed the need to maintain surveillance at all times.
