Three border patrol police officers were injured in a gun attack by two suspected insurgents while returning towards their base in Narathiwat's Rusoh district on Thursday morning.
Police deputy inspector Captain Marut Nilkosi visited the scene at Ban Manang Panyang (Moo 1) in Tambon Samakkhee. Officers collected around 20 spent AK-47 and HK cartridges where the pair shot at the passing police truck.
The bullet-ridden pickup truck reached the Tambon Suwari station despite being damaged.
Sergeant Majors Sak Chaina, Surachai Narin and Meechai Kittisak sustained wounds and were taken to Raman Hospital in Yala.
The three officers were deployed to the troubled region from Udon Thani on October 1. They had collected their first assignment letter when the attack occurred.
