170 Fiji soldiers and medical personnel are expected to join the UN peacekeeping force near the border of Syria, in the Israel-occupied Golan Heights within two weeks.
The United Nations said the ‘Fijian army has always been a reliable peacekeeping force’ and ‘they welcome the troops going to the area later this month’.

The Fiji peacekeepers will replace Austrian troops who pulled out of the mission last week, as hostilities on the Syrian-Israeli border intensify.

This will be Fiji’s first contribution to UNDOF since it was established by the UN Security Council in 1974.
