The attack took place Tuesday evening in Yala province, said Pamote Prom-in. The attackers opened fire on two checkpoints. Twelve people were killed on the spot and three others died in the hospital, he said.

This attack is one of the bloodiest in the history of this separatist insurgency that erupted in 2004 in the Muslim majority provinces of southern Thailand, a predominantly Buddhist country. The conflict has left about 7,000 dead, but attacks have been more rare since the 2014 coup, as the military junta reinforced patrols and curfews.

"It reminds us that they are still there"commented Don Pathan, an analyst specializing in this conflict.
