The next Fiji contingent leaving for peacekeeping duties under the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) for the Golan Heights is expected to leave next month.

This was revealed by Minister for Defence, Immigration and National Security, Timoci Natuva, in Parliament yesterday.

He said the rotation would be important because the deployed personnel would be outfitted with arms and equipment that was supplied under Russian military aid to Fiji.

“The Fiji contingent in UNDOF will continue in the support responsibilities required of us; Fiji remains steadfast in the commitment,” Mr Natuva said.

“The Fiji contingent serving with UNDOF in the Golan still remains on the Alpha side of the Area of Separation (AOS) in Israel,” he said.
