AN additional 300 military personnel will join the 182-member contingent headed for the troubled Israeli-Syria border.

Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) Land Force Commander Lieutenant Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga told departing troops yesterday that the additional personnel were expected to leave the country at the end of this year.

Speaking at their final parade at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks at Nabua, Lt-Col Tikoitoga called on the peacekeepers to perform to their best and lay the platform for those who would follow them to the Golan Heights.

He also called on the personnel bound for the Golan not to complain about the task they would face but to use God's word as their weapon.
