NARATHIWAT: The Thai military has increased patrols along the Thai-Malaysian border in Narathiwat province to prevent the smuggling of goods, people, firearms and explosives.

“The deployment of troops in the border area is very important in maintaining the security of the country,” said Thai Army chief General Chalermchai Sittisart when visiting the 2nd Border Defence Company of the Narathiwat Task Force in Takbai, Narathiwat, yesterday.

He added that there were individuals who helped militants to escape and hide in a neighbouring country and that security forces were investigating and would bring them to justice. — Bernama
