I don't understand your code either.

namespace ConsoleApplication2
{
    using System;

    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            bool IsTSL ;
            bool IsJPN ;
            string result;
            
            IsTSL = true;
            IsJPN = true;
            result =
                (IsTSL ? string.Empty : "Where ilas_prov_location LIKE 'TS%'") +
                (IsJPN ? string.Empty : "Where ilas_prov_location LIKE 'JP%'") +
                (IsJPN || IsTSL ? string.Empty : "What Should I not");
            Console.WriteLine("IsTSL={0}, IsJPN={1} \t\t=> |{2}|", IsTSL, IsJPN, result);

            IsTSL = false;
            IsJPN = true;
            result =
                (IsTSL ? string.Empty : "Where ilas_prov_location LIKE 'TS%'") +
                (IsJPN ? string.Empty : "Where ilas_prov_location LIKE 'JP%'") +

I guess you're trying to built a entire WHERE condition. E.g.

namespace ConsoleApplication2
{
    using System;

    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            bool IsTSL;
            bool IsJPN;
            string result;

            IsTSL = true;
            IsJPN = true;
            result =
                (IsTSL ? string.Empty : "AND ilas_prov_location LIKE 'TS%'") +
                (IsJPN ? string.Empty : "AND ilas_prov_location LIKE 'JP%'");
            Console.WriteLine("IsTSL={0}, IsJPN={1} \t\t=> |{2}|", IsTSL, IsJPN,
                result.Equals(string.Empty) ? string.Empty : "WHERE " + result.Substring(4));

            IsTSL = false;
            IsJPN = true;
            result =
                (IsTSL ? string.Empty : "AND ilas_prov_location LIKE 'TS%'") +
                (IsJPN ? string.Empty : "AND ilas_prov_location LIKE 'JP%'");
            Console.WriteLine("IsTSL={0}, IsJPN={1} \t=> |{2}|", IsTSL, IsJPN,
                result.Equals(string.Empty) ? string.Empty : "WHERE " + result.Substring(4));

            IsTSL = true;
            IsJPN = false;
            result =
                (IsTSL ? string.Empty : "AND ilas_prov_location LIKE 'TS%'") +
                (IsJPN ? string.Empty : "AND ilas_prov_location LIKE 'JP%'");
            Console.WriteLine("IsTSL={0}, IsJPN={1} \t=> |{2}|", IsTSL, IsJPN,
                result.Equals(string.Empty) ? string.Empty : "WHERE " + result.Substring(4));

            IsTSL = false;
            IsJPN = false;
            result =
                (IsTSL ? string.Empty : "AND ilas_prov_location LIKE 'TS%'") +
                (IsJPN ? string.Empty : "AND ilas_prov_location LIKE 'JP%'");
            Console.WriteLine("IsTSL={0}, IsJPN={1} \t=> |{2}|", IsTSL, IsJPN,
                result.Equals(string.Empty) ? string.Empty : "WHERE " + result.Substring(4));

            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}
