Yingluck orders monitoring red zones

 

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra (ยิ่งลักษณ์ ชินวัตร) has ordered security officers in the Deep South to closely monitor the notoriously dangerous red zones and step up local security operation.

Fourth Army Region Commander Lieutenant General Sakol Chuentrakul (สกล ชื่นตระกูล) said today that the instruction was given during the prime minister’s visit to the south yesterday. Local authorities were also ordered to report the progress of the operation to the Committee for Implementation of Policies and Strategies for Solving Problems in the Southern Border Provinces.

Similar instructions were given to National Police Chief Police General Adul Sangsingkeo (อดุลย์ แสงสิงแก้ว). The police were ordered to expedite security cases and separate them from normal criminal cases in the region.

In addition, the prime minister has tasked local hospitals with preparing related medical equipment for swift treatment and transfer of patients.

Lieutenant General Sakol said that Army Chief General Prayut Chan-O-cha (ประยุทธ์ จันทรโอชา) has ordered the regional army to search for possible insurgent targets and prevent the bombings.

The move came after the fatal roadside bombing in Yala (ยะลา) province on Friday, which killed Yala Deputy Governor Issara Thongthawat (อิศรา ทองธวัช) and one government official in Bannang Sata (บันนังสตา) district.
