Twelve fallen peacekeepers from Bangladesh will be honoured by the United Nations

Twelve fallen peacekeepers from Bangladesh will be honoured by the United Nations (UN) on Friday when it will observe the International Day of UN Peacekeepers.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will lay a wreath to honour all peacekeepers who lost their lives since 1948, reports UNB.

He will preside over a ceremony in which the Dag Hammarskjold Medal will be awarded, posthumously, to 119 military, police, and civilian peacekeepers, who lost their lives in 2018 and early 2019.

Twelve Bangladeshi peacekeepers will be among those honoured, the UN said in a statement.

They are: SNK Arzan Howlader and SNK Md Ripul Miah who served with UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic; SNK Mohammad Jamal Uddin, WO Mohammad Abul Kalam Azad, SNK Mohammad Rayhan Ali, LCPL Mohammad Akter Hossain, and SNK Mohammad Rasheduzzaman who served with United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali; SNK Md Zane Alam who served with the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the DR Congo; and SNK Md Motiar Rahman, SNK Md Monjur Ali, LCPL Md Mizanur Rahaman and LCDR Md Ashraf Siddiqui who served with the UN Mission in South Sudan.

"We remember the more than 3,800 personnel who paid the ultimate price. And we express our deepest gratitude to the 100,000 civilian, police, and military peacekeepers deployed around the world today; and to the countries that contribute these brave and dedicated women and men," Guterres said.
