The South Thailand Insurgency has been ongoing, mainly in the southern provinces of Pattani, Yala, and Narathiwat, since 1948. The conflict resulted in decades of low-level violence before reaching a peak between 2004 and 2015, with several insurgent groups launching attacks against security forces and civilians, followed by a decrease in attacks over the past few years. ?
In addition, along the border of Thailand, over 97,000 refugees from Myanmar are staying in nine camps. Most camps were established in 1997, following the arrival of thousands of Myanmar refugees fleeing armed conflict and persecution. ?

Distribution of drinking water is ongoing and mobile kitchens have been deployed to provide food to those in need. Heavy rainfall is expected to continue until 15 September, which could further aggravate the situation. ?
