March 8— Maj Gen Dr Rienthong Nanna, director of Mongkutwattana General Hospital, condemned last night’s shooting attack at the hospital on Chaeng Wattana Road.

The incident occurred at about 8pm on Friday when unknown attackers fired at this privately-run hospital which is near the PDRC rally site led by Phra Buddha Issara. The shooting caused some damage to the hospital but no one was injured.

After the attack on the hospital, Dr Rienthong posted a photo and a message on his Facebook page last night to condemn the assault.

He said that hospitals or medical units have never been targets of attacks even during world wars or any wartime, affirming that the hospital treated both People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) supporters and their opponents fairly and without discrimination.

The hospital director admitted that there are hospital officials who support the PDRC movement and those that oppose the PDRC but they can work together and coexist peacefully, adding that the attack might lead to conflict between both sides.

However, the hospital would not file a complaint regarding the attack, Dr Rienthong said, explaining that he was not confident in and could not rely on the caretaker government.

He also asked for army units stationed in Chaeng Wattana zone to provide security.1947626_620278428046099_1922472116_n1795705_709529242402578_1437214209_n1962806_709529252402577_380378437_n
