MILITARY Commander Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga confirmed the 45 soldiers to replace those held captive in the Golan Heights had marched into camp.

Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said the soldiers were undergoing training and would only leave following the release of the soldiers in Golan Heights.

"They have marched into camp, they are going through the training process, and they are not leaving any soon," he said.

Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said Fiji's involvement in Golan would depend on:

* The release of the soldiers held in captivity; and

* On the number of soldiers who want to return home.

He said soldiers held by al-Nusra would need to go through a psychological debriefing process.

"We will make assessment on them if there is a requirement to send all of them back home. If there is requirement to send few who have been traumatised, we will just replace the few and others will continue," he said.
