Today, Jamaica’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness declared a Zone of Special Operation in the community of South Savanna La Mar in the Parish of Westmoreland.

“The Parish of Westmorland has several communities captured by gangs and currently in the grips of barbaric gangsters executing brutal terror on our people.  These communities are in need of social and infrastructural intervention. Some of these communities are urban in nature and their profile fits the application of zones of special operations.

This morning we declared a Zone of Special Operation in Sav South to include the communities of Russia, Darling Street and Dexter Street.

I have spent time in these areas and i am aware of the conditions of terror that the people endure. I feel their pain. I know that the vast majority of residents in those gang captured communities weather in Central Kingston, August Town, or Sav South are peaceful, law abiding citizens, who simply want to live in peace.

However their lives have been imperilled by criminals inflicting terror on the community.  To those who are suffering they are puzzled as to why some leaders who hold political power do not recognize the state of emergency which exists in some of these areas.

Zones of Special Operations will displace the criminals and disrupt their pattern of terror activities.  It will give the people of these communities a well needed break.  A break from the gun shots every night, from sleeping under their beds every night, from the random and collateral murders and other acts of terror” said the Prime Minister in a special televised announcement.
