Ten convenience stores and a gas station in three restive southern provinces were fire-bombed by suspected insurgents last night (Tuesday) in what local authorities believe to have been coordinated attacks intended to stir unrest.

 

According to initial reports, no one was injured.

 

Many of the 7-Eleven convenience stores attacked were located in gas stations.

 

According to the Yala Today webpage, a Bangchak gas station in Bo Thong sub-district of Pattani was attacked. Flames from the gas pump spread to a Mini Big C store, an oil tanker and two other trucks parked at the gas station.

Eleven Coordinated Fire-Bombings In Southern Provinces

Ten convenience stores and a gas station in three restive southern provinces were fire-bombed by suspected insurgents last night (Tuesday) in what local authorities believe to have been coordinated attacks intended to stir unrest.  According to initial reports, no one was injured.  Many of the 7-Eleven convenience stores attacked were located in gas stations.

 

According to the Yala Today webpage, a Bangchak gas station in Bo Thong sub-district of Pattani was attacked. Flames from the gas pump spread to a Mini Big C store, an oil tanker and two other trucks parked at the gas station.

 

The second attack took place at a Mini Big C convenience store in Thung Yang Daeng district of the same province.

 

Three 7-Elevens and a Mini Big C convenience store in Yaha, Raman, Bannang Sata and Muang districts of Yala were also firebombed.

 

Shortly before midnight, a police unit in Yaha district rushed to a convenience store at a gas station, after they were alerted to a suspicious bag in the store, left by a suspect whose face was covered by a head scarf.

 

Four 7-Elevens and a Mini Big C convenience store in Cho-airong, Bacho, Si Sakhon and Su-ngai Kolok districts in Narathiwat province were also attacked with firebombs.

 

The 4th Army Region, which is responsible for security in the southern provinces, is yet to issue a statement or give a press conference about the attacks.

 

Southern insurgents have been waging a protracted campaign of violence against the Thai government in their efforts to gain self-determination in the Deep South. Peace talks between the Thai military and insurgent groups, particularly the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN), facilitated by Malaysia, have been on and off and have made little headway.

Many of you do not understand the nature of the conflict and why the insurgents are unhappy with Thailand.

 

It maybe. Tell us.

You could start by learning about the 1909 Anglo-Siamese treaty - This area was never Thailand.

Are you sure?

Do you have a date on that map? We know from history that borders were moved at different times in history. Perhaps I should have worded the sentence better. My bad.
 

I am don’t claim to be any expert on the subject, I do know it goes back to the British empire interfering with borders, @spidermike007 came up with some even older treaties, but I know it’s not just a case of “dirty ragheads” as some members of the forum see it.

Here is one example? How would you feel if your home was used as a dumping ground for bent / disgraced officials? Do you think the officials are likely to have your best interests at heart?

That's a rather feeble example to say the least. This group are funded, and encouraged, out of the middle east via a neighbouring country.

Maybe this will encourage Thailand to sort out the issues instead of dragging it out for decades.

Build a 30 metre high wall across the country with no gates. topped with electrified barbed wire. Then let them regress back to the middle ages where they belong.

Thailand?
