Our Soldiers Still Keep Watch Over Two Sites

 

Two remote sites in North Sinai – SCC 2 and CP1–C are still under the responsibility of Fijian peacekeepers.

The Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) director peacekeeping Commander Humphrey Tawake yesterday confirmed that there were 12 soldiers at SCC 2 and 12 at CP1-C.

He said the decision for the soldiers to vacate the two sites would be made soon.

Commander Tawake said currently there were 92 soldiers at the North Camp and 179 at the South Camp.

The decision for the 92 soldiers to move out from the North Camp was yet to be determined under the configuration programme, which would be completed in the next couple of months. He said for those at the South Camp they would return home on civilian flights. This was also confirmed to the Fiji Sun by the RFMF chief of staff, Colonel Litea Seruiratu.

Commander Tawake said the first returning group was supposed to arrive yesterday but the flight they were booked in was full.

He confirmed they would return home as soon as seats were available on civilian flights.

Those who went on the last lift to Sinai went on civilian flights.

Commander Humphrey reassured family members that those still in the North Camp, the 24 at the remote sites and those at the South Camp were safe.
