|Phillipines Defense Forum: Details of the Fiji surrender|
Intel sources say the 45 troops had kava and were doing the taralala so were probably incapable of decisive action the next morning when 150 rebels descended on them.
It's also emerged the Fiji peacekeepers wanted to fight but were ordered by a senior official from Suva's Queen Elizabeth Barracks to surrender.
Our story the troops had radioed Israel for help to move to a safe zone has meanwhile been verified on a leading Facebook site which has detailed a lot of information about the Fiji surrender.

Discussions on the Phillipines Defense Forces Forum have confirmed Fiji's call for help to Israel was denied and they were told to hold instead because we no longer have status thanks to the regime signing a diplomatic agreement with Tehran.
C4.5 has been told the troops then called someone senior at QEB, who told them to lay down their weapons and surrender because they would be escorted to a safe zone.
The men were instead taken to a unknown location and no one has had direct contact with them since, although Al Nusra has released a picture of them and their ID cards.
The question that needs to be answered is "Who was responsible for telling the men to surrender?"
Sources say it could only have been someone senior, like the landforce or commander.
