Army explosive experts injured

Meanwhile, on Friday, two bombs exploded in Pattani province in southern Thailand, killing a fisherman and seriously injuring three army explosive ordnance disposal officers.

Lieutenant Colonel Thanongsak Jesa, an EOD officer from Pattani province, suffered injuries to his face, left hand, and both legs. A second EOD officer from Pattani, Lt. Col. Kasem Buathet, sustained injuries to his face and right leg and is in a coma after losing significant amounts of blood.

According to The Thaiger, the first explosion that happened around 3 am on Friday in the Sai Buri district killed Nawi Pramon, a fisherman. Around 7 am, a second explosion occurred, injuring three officers who were working on the scene.

Security forces thought a third party might attack despite the Ramadan peace agreement, according to Commander Kriangkrai Srirak of the Fourth Army Region.

The Thai army will attempt to find out whether the PULO or its offshoot groups are open to peace talks, he added.
