Army Commander Daya Ratnayake on Friday said that Sri Lanka’s security forces invented their own methods to fight against one of the ferocious terrorist groups in the world.
He said that during the war there were ups and downs for the security forces. “We were required to adapt and remain ahead of our enemy. We did adapt. We did think out of the box. We invented our own methods and we succeeded,” the Commander said.
Lt. Gen. Ratnayake made this comment addressing the graduation parade of the newly commissioned officers of the Naval and Maritime Academy, Trincomalee on Friday night, as the Chief Guest of the event.
Speaking further the Commander said “it is almost four years since we have concluded combat operations and the transformation that has taken place thereafter too has surprised many.”
