Thai army spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd reportedly said last week that just three Thai troops have been killed in skirmishes with Cambodia along the countries’ shared border since 2008, not the 88 that Royal Cambodian Armed Forces deputy commander Chea Dara claimed last month had been killed. “The information released by Cambodia that we have lost 88 Thai soldiers along the border during the past year is not true. In fact, only three Thai soldiers were killed and some others injured,” Sansern said, according to the Bangkok Post. Chea Dara’s claim that Thailand had withdrawn 50 percent of its forces once stationed at the border near Preah Vihear temple is also false, Sansern added.
