Last Phase For UNIFIL Redeployment

Preparatory work on the redeployment of Fijian soldiers from the Golan Heights to Lebanon is in its last phase.

Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) Land Force Commander Colonel Sitveni Qiliho said the reconnaissance team of Commander Humphrey Tawake and Lieutenant-Colonel Alipate Vosaicake had returned from the UNIFIL.

Colonel Qiliho said their report had been submitted to Cabinet for its approval.

In the meantime, the Golan Heights soldiers are now preparing and will be deployed as soon as Cabinet approval comes through. Colonel Qiliho said the report he received from Syria yesterday stated that the Fijian soldiers, who were still at Camp Ziouani in Israel, were all in good health.

The report also said that the new United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) chief of staff, Colonel Ratu Jone Kalouniwai, had assumed duties.
