The Commander of Indobatt-03, Lt.Col. Syamsul Alam, stated in an electronic message received here on Wednesday that the patrols are conducted every day during day and night using Anoa (APC) vehicle, trucks and ambulances.
"The patrols are carried out by Company A, B, C and D. The patrolled areas are Sandikoro, Khaskhasa, Jhokana, Amara Jadid, Krinding, Ojejei, Bore Hole and Doroti," he explained.
Syamsul Alam said the Garuda XXXV-C / Unamid Corps has been known to be friendly, polite, and mingle to the locals, which are a real effort in recovering the trauma of civilians.
The Indobatt-03 Commander stated that the assignment in the country has helped the Garuda Peace Corps in carrying out this peace mission abroad.
"The Garuda XXXV-C / Unamid Corps is the third task force for Unamids mission in West Darfur (Sector West), and will carry out its duties until April 2018," he said.
Syamsul added, the Indonesian Garuda Peace Corps has been known by the locals in the Darfur region since two years ago when its first mission began.
"The Indonesian troops are easily accepted in this mission area because they are friendly to civilians, especially children," he said.
In addition to serving as a peacekeeping force, the Garuda Indobatt-03 also carries out Civil Military Coordination (Cimic) programs, including distributing Islamic alms to the locals and providing mass medical treatment.(WDY)
