Twenty-eight Republic of Fiji Military Forces personnel departed for Sinai yesterday.

This is part of the annual rotation of Fijian men and women serving under the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO).

Draft Commanding Officer, Captain Ilai Tawakedrau is leading the first chalk of Lift 1.

RFMF Chief of Staff, Colonel Litea Seruiratu, said the next chalk of Lift 1 may depart in two weeks, depending on the availability of seats.

Colonel Seruiratu also confirmed that none of the Russian arms recently received by Fiji will be used in Sinai.

“All Russian military equipment will be used in the Golan Heights.”

Apart from peacekeeping duties in the Middle East, RFMF personnel are leading the charge in disaster relief efforts around the country after the Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston struck on February 20.
