The Army has established the 224th Brigade in Kinniya in order to normalise the area and assist the police following several tense situations and clashes which took place in the area recently.

“We sent two battalions to assist the police and bring law and order in the area following these incidents. Still the people react to rumours. So the Army has to be there,” Military spokesman Brigadier Nihal Hapuarachchi said, adding, “We need an establishment to manage and maintain our operations in the area.” He also stated that due to the presence of the army the situation was brought under control.

The two battalions consist of 1000 – 1200 troops and are presently in the area. They will be inducted into the new 224th Brigade, Brigadier Hapuarachchi said. (Supun Dias)

    Very good move, there is more than enough man power in the army now that the war is over. They are the only guys have the rights to fight.
