The Fijians should have defied the order made by the Indian General comander and they would not be in this situation. The defiance of the Filipinos did not bring another 75 soldiers as hostages. Remember that the captors are hardcore Al-Qaeda members. The Fijians should stood … m their ground first because they have not captured yet by the rebels but what they did was to voluntarily surrender and give their arms to the Al-Nusra rebels as ordered by their Indian commanding general. Thus, they are now held as hostages. The Filipinos were also ordered the same by the Indian commander and if they did then a total of 120 hostages and without the assurance they will be all released at the sme time. These Al-nusra rebels just recently killed Syrian soldiers prior the hostage taking. And, I believe they wont release these hostages at one time because these kinds of hostage takers have lots of demands, what 120 hostages can bring to them in terms of demands. right?

Good thing the Philippine peacekeepers didnt follow the UNDOF commander’s order to surrender. The lying man who ACTUALLY instructed the Fiji to surrender (according to Fiji military chief) should be fired. I hope for Fiji peacekeepers’ safe release someday if not soonest.
