Update: 2:02PM NEGOTIATIONS for the release of 44 captured Fijian peacekeepers have yet to bear fruit with the military saying this morning they are very concerned that the soldiers exact location remains unconfirmed.

But Military Commander Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga adds contacts on the ground in the Golan Heights have assured them of the captured soldiers well-being.

We still at this stage cannot confirm the exact location of our troops at all levels, there is the official negotiation team by the UN negotiators and also the local negotiation by the Fijians on the ground in the different context they work in, Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said.

He also explained that Filipino peacekeepers part of UNDOF had withdrawn from their positions after continuous harassment by armed elements.
