At least 1,600 Tamil youth from the Jaffna district have joined the Sri Lanka Army within the period of three months, Army Commander Shavendra Silva said.
He expressed this while addressing the Security Forces officials at the Jaffna Headquarters.
“We still find people expressing views in favour of separatism. In such a situation, it is a great victory that Tamil youth have come forward to join the Army.
The Army Commander also commended the service rendered by the Army and Air Force personnel in the Jaffna district in taking the lead to provide necessary quarantine facilities for the general public. (Romesh Madushanka)
