This undated file image attached in a statement released on August 30, 2014 on the Hanin Network website, a militant website, shows Fijian U.N. peacekeepers who were seized by The Nusra Front on August 28, 2014, in the Golan Heights in the buffer zone between Syria and Israel.

Fiji says its 45 United Nations peacekeepers being held captive in Syria are shown in a new video posted on YouTube.

The video shows two men speaking in Arabic with the Fijian troops sitting cross-legged in the background.

Near the end of the 15-minute video, one of the Fijian soldiers speaks in English.

Fijian government spokeswoman Sharon Smith-Johns said on Thursday the soldiers depicted in the video are those being held by the Nusra Front and identified the Fijian speaking as Captain Savenaca Rabuka.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
