Sebelum berlaku kejadian pencerobohan di Lahad Datu, ada berlaku serangan terhadap pengkalan military di Selatan Thai pada Februari 10hb. Berikut adalah laporan Associated Press:
Five Soldiers Killed in Southern Thailand
PATTANI, Thailand—Suspected militants killed five soldiers and wounded five others in two roadside attacks Sunday in Thailand's insurgency-plagued southern provinces, police said.
In one of the attacks, insurgents detonated a car bomb on a road in Raman district in Yala province as a truck carrying six soldiers passed by early Sunday, Police Maj. Torphan Pusanthia said.
The militants then opened fire on the soldiers, killing five of them, and took away the dead soldiers' rifles, he said. One wounded soldier was rushed to a hospital.
The six soldiers were on their way to guard a group of local farmers on their way to work.
In the other attack, insurgents set off a bomb on a road in Ra Ngae district in Narathiwat province and wounded four soldiers, Police Col. Jiradet Phrasawang said.
He said the insurgents hid an improvised bomb under the road surface and detonated it as a pickup truck carrying the soldiers passed by.
More than 5,000 people have been killed in Thailand's three southernmost provinces since an Islamic insurgency erupted in 2004.
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said Sunday that the government would examine whether curfews are needed in the restive south, especially in the areas where attacks frequently occur.
"Authorities are looking into details," Ms. Yingluck told reporters. "Any areas that are peaceful, we don't want to announce curfews, but any areas that remain problematic, we will look at it on a case-by-case basis."
Officials from security agencies are scheduled to meet Friday to discuss safety measures for the southernmost provinces.
Teachers as well as security officials have been targeted as government representatives by the insurgents, who have made no public pronouncements but are thought to be fighting for an independent Muslim state. The area used to be an Islamic sultanate until it was annexed by Thailand in the early 20th century.
Muslims in Yala, Pattani, Narathiwat and part of Songkhla provinces have long complained of discrimination by the Buddhist-dominated central government.
Dalam laporan lain, mangsa di katakan seramai 19 orang dan mereka di serang 50 pemberontak sekarang. Setuausaha Agong National Security Council (NSC), Paradon Pattanathabutr berkata tiada curfew akan dipanggil.
Kisah Lahad Datu dikatakan ada sentuhan Anwar Ibrahim. Kalau ikutkan akuan mereka kesultanan Sulu, ini cerita dongeng dan merepek. Baca Phillip Golingai SINI yang dalam Tweeter mengatakan:
A Phillipines millitary officer said millitants in Lahad Datu invited to Sabah by a Malaysian opposition politician to discuss land issues.
Pendedahan tulisan MrKinabaluBoy rupanya bukan calang-calang blog tapi seorang yang tahu keadaan sebenar. Tak boleh kami kasi tahu siapa kan...
Katanya pula Anwar mintak Nur Misuari bayarkan mereka.
Ini mengingatkan kita pada Dato Eskay yang pernah mendedahkan anwar beriya-iya nak ketemui kumpulan pemisah selatan Thai. Katanya dia dah jumpa dan macam-macam dia mahu lakukan.
Adakah Lahad Datu dan Selatan Thai ini permainan Anwar juga? Kenapa berlaku hampir sama waktu dan ketika hampir PRU?
Apa yang menguntungkan Anwar dengan mengadakan peristiwa sedemikian? Diversion? Atau menyusahkan pasukan keselamatan?
Kami hanya ingat Fahmi reza mengdaakan program membincang filem Bringing down a dictator sejauh tahun 2010 lagi. Baca SINI dan SINI
Selain itu, filem-filem berikut:
Adakah ini untuk membuat tentera sibuk dan tidak upaya hadapi Tahrir Square palsu Anwar? Tan Srti Musa Hassan kata SINI boleh berlaku jika pihak kalah tak puashati.
Mereka juga boleh atur dan buat-buat tak puashati.
