The Fiji Military Forces is in talks with the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force to redeploy troops back to the vacated operational areas in the Golan Heights in Syria.

Commander, Rear Admiral Viliame Naupoto, says more than three hundred soldiers will be deployed to Golan Heights in a few months as part of their yearly rotation.

“Currently discussions are in the Golan about the movements of our troops back to the area that was vacated before it is called OP52 so we’re discussing for our troops to move back into that area. We are currently doing our rotation now. In Iraq those who are serving they’ll be doing their rotation in a few weeks and our troops that are going to go to Golan their doing training right now and will be rotating in a few months’ time.”
