Cambodian and Thai border troops exchanged fire on Friday near the ancient temple of Preah Vihear, military sources said.

 

The fighting started at around 3 p.m. There were no immediate reports of casualties from the crossfire.

 

The re-tension between Cambodia and Thailand over the border started on Thursday last week after Thailand asked Cambodia to remove a national flag over Wat Keo Sikha Kiri Svarak pagoda near Preah Vihear temple, claiming that the pagoda is on the disputed area, but the Cambodian side rejected it, saying that it is situated in Cambodian territory according to the map produced by the Franco-Siamese commissions between the period of 1905 and 1908.

 

Since then, military forces from both sides have been reinforced; tanks, fighting vehicles, missiles and ammunition have been dispatched to their respective border areas.

 

A close military source said that the tension at the border near Preah Vihear temple was heated up on Thursday afternoon and " both side's troops were on high alert."

Bangkok Post has a report that 'two or three Thai soldiers' have been injured.

 

Thais wounded, border fighting continues

 

Two or three Thai soldiers were wounded in fighting with Cambodian troops on Friday afternoon near the 4.6 square kilometre area under dispute near Preah Vihear temple. The Cambodians had fired artillery shells which landed on Thai soil, an informed military source said.

 

The clash took place about 3.20pm and fighting was continuing around the Preah Vihear temple area.

 

Lt-Gen Tawatchai Samutsakhon, 2nd Army commander, said Cambodian troops who started the fight.

 

Many artillery rounds landed at Huay Thip village in tambon Rung of Si Sa Ket's Kanthararak district, north of the Preah Vihear temple and about 1km from Phu Makhua mountain, which is part of the disputed area.

 

Two or three Thai soldiers were reported wounded. Casualties on the Cambodian side were not known.

Two die in Cambodia clash

 

An uneasy ceasefire was holding at the border with Cambodia after fierce fighting left two dead and resulted in the capture of five Thai rangers.

 

The two-hour clash between Thai and Cambodian troops near Phu Ma Khua area of Si Sa Ket yesterday killed at least two people - one Thai villager and one Cambodian soldier - and left several people injured.

 

Troops in nearby border provinces were placed on high alert as the capture of the five Thai rangers raised fears that the conflict could widen.

 

The five soldiers, who were based near Cambodia's Keo Sikha Kiri Savara pagoda, were detained by Cambodian troops.

 

The fighting included artillery exchanges and small arms fire, and partially destroyed communities on Thai soil.

 

The cross-border flare-up erupted about 3.15pm, a few hours after Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya and his Cambodian counterpart Hor Namhong met in Siem Reap and pledged to avoid violence in resolving border disputes.

 

Cambodian Information Minister Khieu Kanharith claimed the fighting erupted when Thai troops ignored warnings to stop crossing into its territory.

 

He said the Cambodians shot into the air and the Thai soldiers returned fire.

 

But Thailand disputed that account.

 

Army spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd said the clash was triggered by artillery rounds from the Cambodian side that fell on Thai territory.

 

"Cambodia didn't stop and started firing. We had to return fire," said Col Sansern shortly before the ceasefire.

 

Cambodia's artillery shells landed at Ban Non Chaeng and Ban Phum Saron villages, setting fire to four houses.

 

Charoen Pahom, a resident of Ban Phum Saron, was killed by artillery shells. Thai troops responded with heavy fire.

Formal ceasefire just announced although both sides says the area remains tense.

 

Someone neglected to tell the opposing forces:

http://www.bangkokpost.com/lite/topstories/220202/fighting-flares-anew-on-border

 

"A more severe exchange began at 6.30pm and lasted until about 9.40pm, with heavy artillery fire being exchanged between Cambodian and Thai troops centred on Don-aow village in tambon Rung, Kantharalak, near Preah Vihear temple.

 

The Cambodian government said the 11th-century Hindu temple was damaged in the firefight."

This can be good and bad for us.

The good side is it might bring down the bath.

The bad side is it might be more dangerous.

The other bad thing as that if the situation looks too hot, the Insurance companies will refuse to issue Travel Insurance for Thailand again, like they did during the Red Shirt incident last year. Don't fancy a trip to LOS without insurance!

The Thais, even the TNP and PAD, dont seem to have an issue over the temple so much. This was granted to Cambodia in 1962 by the International Court.

 

Its the land the temple stands on that they get the ache about.

 

Its tiny, 4.6 sq kilom'.

 

Minor issue, just adding some info!

You're right in the passed problems like with the red shrits. Bath did go up, but this will be a war with other country.
