Commander Security Forces - Jaffna Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe said, "Army has no plan to acquire civilians' lands to establish camps in Jaffna.

Instead, Army has been continuously handing back houses occupied by the Army since the end of war to their legitimate owners.

But, as a matter of national security, the Headquarters will acquire a limited area to expand the Palaly Airport and the Kankesanthurai Harbour, presently under the process of rapid expansion."

Major General Hathurusinghe revealed these facts when he met the British High Commissioner John Rankin.

Rankin arrived in Palaly for a two day visit in Jaffna.
