IN a bid to maintain peace in the troubled Golan Heights, a total of 147 soldiers leave the country today.

Speaking to the soldiers at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks last night, Republic of Fiji Military Forces Commander, Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga reminded them that they were true warriors irrespective of which country they were going to serve in.

The head of the RFMF told the soldiers to go with the belief that they would carry the UN banner with a lot of pride.

"Don't forget the many sacrifices you make," he said.

Brig-Gen Tikoitoga told the soldiers not to forget what they were leaving behind.

"... you are leaving behind your family, vanua and church.

"There is no other better person to do this peacekeeping job than you."
