Haiti - FLASH : Dominican army sends 900 more troops to reinforce border
Monday, the Minister of Defense Lieutenant-General Rubén Darío Paulino Sem, confirmed the dispatch of 895 reinforcements to the border to support Operation Shield set up since January 2015 and the surveillance and control operations of Haitians who attempt to enter the Dominican territory illegally every day (500 to 800) http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21499-haiti-flash-more-than-140-000-haitians-turned-back-at-the-dominican-border.html It should be noted that a few days ago 300 soldiers had already been sent to reinforce the specialized Corps of Security to the land borders (CESFRONT) http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21521-haiti-flash-military-reinforcement-at-the-dominican-border.html

He precised "We are increasing controls, and we are back every day of people who are trying to enter our country illegally. From Monte Cristi to Pedernales, the Army carries out patrols." http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21499-haiti-flash-more-than-140-000-haitians-turned-back-at-the-dominican-border.html

The Ministry of Defense, the Haitian National Police and the Embassy of Haiti in the Dominican Republic have started a series of meetings to discuss issues of common interest around border security between the two countries and coordinate their actions, in particular on the migration of Haitians http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21598-haiti-politics-pnh-and-the-dominican-ministry-of-defense-discuss-border-security.html

The number of Dominican soldiers stationed along the borders remains unknown, but the Ministry of Defense refuses to specify it. However, one can reasonably estimate that with the last reinforcements no less than 4,000 soldiers (less than 10% of the active Dominican Army) are in permanent operation along the border. Remember that Operation Shield alone, by rotation, mobilizes more than 20,000 soldiers per year or nearly 2,000 military personnel on site each month http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-13067-haiti-security-operation-shield-more-than-22-000-troops-along-the-dominican-border.html
