Sixth suspected insurgent killed in Narathiwat peat swamp

Recommended Posts



Thai security forces shot and killed a suspected insurgent in a peat swamp in Bareh Tai sub-district of Bacho district in Thailand’s southern border province of Narathiwat.


Using a backhoe to plough the thick undergrowth, a combined force of troops and paramilitary rangers advanced deeper into the peat swamp to search for remaining insurgents believed to be hiding there.


The suspected insurgents opened fire on the advancing forces, triggering a gun battle that lasted about ten minutes. Then the backhoe continued to advance for several hours, until they found the body of a suspected insurgent lying next to an HK33 assault rifle and ammunition.
