    A flag handover ceremony to the Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) contingent joining the Malaysian Battalion 850-10 (MALBATT 850-10) peacekeeping mission to the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) took place at Bolkiah Garrison yesterday.

    Commander of the RBAF Major General Dato Paduka Seri Haji Muhammad Haszaimi bin Bol Hassan was the guest of honour. Permanent Secretary (Development, Maintenance and Technology) at the Ministry of Defence Colonel (Rtd) Haji Mohammad Norfahssin bin Haji Abdul Karim and Malaysian High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam Dato’ Raja Reza bin Raja Zaib Shah were also present.

    The event began with the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah and Doa Selamat by Major Abdul Mujib bin Japar from the RBAF Religious Directorate followed by the handover from RBAF commander to head of contingent Major Hisham bin Haji Mahmud.

    Brunei Darussalam has been involved in the UNIFIL peacekeeping mission since 2008 which aligns with the Sultanate’s commitment to upholding United Nations’ goals.
