BANGKOK: -- Army commander-in-chief Gen Chalermchai Sithisart voiced concern over the violence in the deep south as southern militants have turned to civilian targets in their terror attacks.

 

He said the militants turned to harm innocent people who included women and children instead of government officials.

 

Comment by the army chief came as the recent bomb attack at Big C Pattani injured over 60 civilians, many of them women and children.

This has prompted the military to alter the strategy and pattern to counter them, he said.

 

He said the Army would seek more talks with its Malaysian counterpart for more cooperation at not only top levels, but those at operational levels.
