REPUBLIC of Fiji Military Forces Commander Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga yesterday confirmed there will only be three peacekeeping missions to Sinai this year.

Speaking in the iTaukei language at his first quarter parade as Commander yesterday morning, Brig-Gen Tikoitoga explained the order of missions abroad, saying the next would be to the Golan Heights.

He said it should be clear that the rotation for the second lift of army personnel from Sinai started two weeks ago, adding there would only be three lifts to Sinai this year.

He explained that after the change of troops in Sinai, the next change would be those from the Golan Heights, followed by the final change, which would be those in Iraq towards the end of the year.

He said to this end, he was addressing members of the 8 First Infantry Regiment about the peacekeeping in the Middle East.

At present, there's a proposal to halve the number serving in the Middle East and those in the 8FIR, the commander told them.
