The blast targeted a military vehicle in Waeng district, Narathiwat Province. The soldiers were transporting equipment to their base in preparation for a celebration on May 5. A day earlier, a similar attack was recorded in the province’s Ru So district. No soldiers were wounded in that explosion, which took place after the soldiers’ vehicle had already passed.
The blast underscores persistently volatile security conditions in Thailand’s far south. Malay-Islamist insurgents conduct frequent attacks against security forces and local opposition. For example, roadside bombings are relatively common occurrences. Security forces will likely launch raids and bolster deployments in the aforementioned southern regions, yet further attacks should be expected regionally. Certain militant factions likely seek to disrupt reported negotiations between select insurgent factions and the Thai government.
