Fiji Military Forces, Land Force Commander, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga says everything will depend on how our soldiers handle the situation on the ground.

He says the spill–over from Syria to the UN zone at the border has concerned Israel and armed rebels occupying the area have given reason to Syria to use weapons at their discretion to try and subdue them.

Tikoitoga adds Fijian troops have been tasked to get back all the territory under the rebels, return them to Syria and clear the UN zone.
