Jakarta. The Indonesian Military, or TNI, on Saturday (18/08) sent a helicopter to the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Lebanon.

The Dauphin HR-3601 and nine crew members will join the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (Unifil), according to a statement issued by TNI.

Nearly 1,300 Indonesian peacekeepers have joined Unifil, making it Indonesia's largest peacekeepers contribution.

In 2015, Indonesia adopted the 4,000 Peacekeepers Vision, a pledge to become one of the top 10 contributors to peacekeeping missions by the end of 2019.

As of June, there were 2,679 Indonesian peacekeepers deployed worldwide, including the UN-African Union Mission in Darfur (Unamid) and the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (Minusca).
