Thai troops again renewed attacks at Cambodian troops based at Ta Krabey Temple late Thursday night through early morning on Friday, a government spokesman said.

Phay Siphan, spokesman of the Office of the Council of Ministers said he had received the information of the new attacks fired on Cambodian troops at Trabey Temple.

"We are very sorry to hear of new attacks from Thai side. As already experienced, Thailand is not honest," he said.

"On one hand, while negotiation for ceasefire is on process, Thai troops on the other hands attacks us," he added.

On Thursday, two sides agreed to a ceasefire and encouraged displaced villagers to return to their hometowns.

New fighting resumed at around 8:50 p.m. on Thursday and continued until 5:30 am on Friday, military sources said.

As of today, fighting at Ta Moan and Ta Krabey temple in Oddar Meanchy Province between the two armed forces has lasted for 8th day since last Friday.

And at least 15 soldiers from both sides were killed since then.
