The Sri Lanka Army is to hold its first ever SEAL (SEa, Air and Land) training exercise, ‘Comoran Strike’ for nine days in the Silawatura area commencing from November 21 to enhance the efficiency of the armed forces.

Nearly 2500 soldiers from the three armed forces are to participate in the exercise with 1600 representing the army Commandoes and the Special Forces, Military spokesman Ubhaya Medawala told Daily Mirror online.

The training will focus on improving decision making, commanding and efficiency in deciding command capabilities at a given situation.

The training exercise is a brain child of the Army Commander Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya, Major General Medawala said. (SD)
