Khmer Raids into Thailand 1975-1979

[ 1975 - 1979 ]

Thousands of refugees from Kampuchea (Cambodia) crossed the border into Thailand to escape starvation and death after the communist Khmer Rouge takeover of their country in 1975. Khmer troops attacked Thai border areas near Aranyaprathet. Thailand closed its border, put its army on alert, and later used air and artillery attacks to drive the enemy back.
