Our Fijian peacekeepers to the United Nations Disen­gagement Observer Force in Golan Heights were blessed with visitors to the camp on Christmas Day.

 

Commanding Officer Lieutenant-Colonel Sakeasi Baka said: “We were blessed to have the presence of our visitors from Fiji – the Da­vuilevu Theological Center group, the Takape Family from Jerusalem and Draunidalo family from Eng­land (British Army).”

Christmas at the Golan began with a church service at the Koron­ikalou Chapel followed by an early lunch.

“After lunch the visitors were treated and hosted by the Ops Cell for a short brief at the Bula House, followed by a veiqaravi vakavanua (traditional gathering for a guest) that started at 1400hrs.”

 

Meanwhile, RFMF Peacekeep­ing Support Operations director and military adviser Lieutenant-Colonel Pacolo Luveni said the lat­est report received from the Golan and other peacekeeping missions showed stability.

“The Fijian contingent remains vigilant and alert, maintaining an adequate security posture and pres­ence in their area of responsibil­ity,” he said.

“The Fijian contingent continue to monitor the fluid security envi­ronment in which they operate in.”
