Prime Minister Andrew Holness says 32 special operations were conducted under the Zone of Special Operations ZOSO in the first ten days in Mount Salem St James.
Mr Holness says the operations led to the recovery of 5 illegal firearms, arrest of 2 wanted men as well as seizure of lead sheets used in lottery scamming.
He says the internal security operations will continue over the next ten days.
Opposition Spokesman on National Security, Peter Bunting has urged the government not to oversell results of operations in the Zones of Special Operations to create unrealistic expectations.
He says there has been an example of this in the statistics presented about the number of murders committed in Mt Salem.
He adds that there are other examples of this in the information presented about the recovery of guns.
In response, Prime Minister Andrew Holness gave the assurance that the weapons recovered are capable of discharging rounds.
