The South Thailand Insurgency, mainly in the provinces of  Pattani, Yala, and Narathiwat,  stretches back to 1948, with roots in an ethnic and religious separatist insurgency dating back to the historical Malay Patani region. In 2004, there was an escalation of violence with several insurgent groups launching attacks against security forces and civilians. Over the last few years there has been a decrease in attacks compared to previous years. ? However, sporadic violent events continue to threaten the stability of the area. ? 

There is no crisis severity score for the conflict due to the lack of available data.
