Sri Lankan air force looks to buy more jets

The Sri Lankan air force is currently in the process of finalising the purchase of further jets, reported the Daily Mirror. 
The ministry of defence was granted permission to proceed with the purchase by the president and Cabinet. 
“Contemporary aircraft which would be suitable for the coming years would be purchased,” SLAF Spokesman Group Captain Gihan Seneviratne was quoted as saying. 
Sixteen Kfir jets were bought from Israel between 1995 and 2005. At least seven were destroyed.
