The Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department on Tuesday declared three border districts of Surin province emergency disaster zones as a consequence of the fierce fighting near two border temple ruins between Thai and Cambopdian troops.
Department chief Wiboon Sa-nguanpong said the latest border clashes along the Thai-Cambodian border near Ta Muen Thom and Ta Kwai temples in tambon Bakdai in Phanom Dong Rak district prompted provincial authorities to declare three districts - Phanom Dong Rak, Kab Choeng and Prasat - disaster zones which are at risk of attacks from outside armed forces.
The disaster zones cover a total of 142 villages in the three border districts, said Mr Wiboon.
