A new series of explosive and arson attacks in famous tourist spots in several provinces last week are believed to be the work of one leader of a network of bombers.
Authorities believe the attacks had been planned effectively. From the scene, two incendiary devices in Hua Hin had been found.
According to Deputy National Police Chief Pongsapat Pongcharoen, the group carried out hte operation in many locations all at the same time following orders from a single individual.
However, no insurgent group had claimed responsibility for the attacks. However, it is highly likely that political enemies of the ruling government or members of the Malay-Muslim-majority South are escalating their action against the Thai junta.
In 2014, military leaders won leadership with a country-wide referendum on a constitution that entrenches their power in any future government. This also antagonised all political enemies of the government effectively.
A firebomb exploded in the island of Phuket on Sunday. Two explosive devices were found in Phang Nga while explosives had detonated in different areas on Friday including Surat Thani.
According to Coup Leader and Prime Minister Prayt Chan-o-cha, the attacks were intended to cause chaos and confusion in the country.
Meanwhile, main opposition party Pheu Thai said on Saturday their members had nothing to do with the escalating bombings in Thailand.
