Enforcement of the Internal Security Act (ISA) takes effect from Tuesday in some districts in a southern province of Song-kla in a bid to ensure security amid the daily violence attack by suspected insurgents.

The ISA law has been imposed in Ja-na, Na-tha-wi, The-pha, and Sa-ba-yoi district of Song-kla, which borders other three southernmost provinces of Yala, Pattani and Narathiwas.

Whether the ISA law will help reduce the deep South's problem, it will take some times to realize, Thai News Agency quoted Mr. Is-ma-al Min-wang, a religious leader in Ja-na district as saying.

The ISA law will be implemented from Tuesday until Nov. 30, 2010.

Thailand's deep South comprises mainly the three southernmost provinces of Yala, Pattani, Narathiwas, and the four districts of Song-kla province.

Over 3,500 people have been killed by the daily violence attack by the suspected separatists since January 2004.
