Army Dozers Jungles for Civilians Waiting to Resettle in their Former Lands

[2012-07-31 17:10:35]

Responding to a request made by civilians who got their lands back after de-mining was completed in Mavaddipuram area, Headquarters Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J) last week mobilized sufficient troops and heavy machineries of 10 Field Engineers at Mailiddy to clear thick jungles in their lands.

Lands that had been abandoned for decades due to terrorist activities of the LTTE were handed back recently to their original owners after removal of land mines and UXO (Unexploded Explosive Ordnance) left by the terrorists during their dominance in the area.

However, the thick jungle overgrown due to absence of inhabitance for thirty years made lands inaccessible for civilians. Then they sought the help of the Army to remove the jungles before resettlement.

Following the request of people, Commander SF-J directed the troops of 10 Field Engineers to help the civilians in all the way possible in getting those lands cleared with supervision of the 515 Brigade.

Total area of these lands in Veemankamam North, Veemankamam South, Mavaddipuram and Mavaddipuram South Gramaseva Division covers nearly 75 acres. By Tuesday (31) Engineer troops had cleared about 20 acres.
