Sri Lanka army tells civilians to knock down all tall buildings near the High Security Zone

The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) which occupies the Jaffna district has ordered residents to knock down all tall walls, water tanks and other tall structures that are present near the area designated as High Security Zone.

Nearly 32% of the district falls under the pretext of High Security Zone, from which civilians have been forcibly removed.

Local residents said that the SLA has threatened to kill them, unless they followed orders. Many residents said that they had spent several thousand rupees building new water tanks and walls during the past few years.
