Major Military Operation In St James
There is currently a major military operation underway in St. James.
The parish is reported to be in a limited state of emergency that has been imposed by the Government.
Soldiers can reportedly be seen stopping and searching motor vehicles at several points in the parish where 335 homicides were recorded last year.
The heightened security measures come after two brazen attacks by gunmen close to the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay yesterday. One person was killed and two others wounded in the attacks.
Both attacks occurred within a time span of less than two hours.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness yesterday stated that the Government intended to take firm and resolute measures to tackle the country’s crime problem.
