The Indonesian Military (TNI) has announced plans to send 167 soldiers to Haiti to take part in humanitarian operations in the Caribbean country that was hit by a massive earthquake in 2010.

According to Lt. Col. Czi Winarno, the officers will be deployed to Haiti in three groups.

"Today, 148 personnel, as the main body [of the operation], are being sent off," Winarno said Monday.

The officers would travel on board a UN chartered flight leaving from Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, he said.

The officers, who were skilled in construction, would serve for one year in Haiti.
