General Chantaraingsey (Norodom Chantaraingsey a cousin of Norodom Sihanouk) Governor of Kirirom province commander of 13 Infantry Brigade. He was very proud of his pacification programme, but the last communist attacks on highway 4 and Phnom Penh during the last three months; Communists profited of the combats everywhere, they came with a big force and destroyed the refugees buildings, weaving buildings etc...They killed all the pigs, destroyed the pigs dens, burnt the peasant's houses who are raised the pigs. they even destroyed the wells, and they hate so much this programme although they have not enough ammunitions, they shot all the boards and cut off the tiger head (the sign of 13 I.B. green tiger).
But, Gen. Chantaraingsey recognize his mistake, to have not enough protective one for his programme. With all the destructions of the villages or ??? by the communists, more than 40,000 refugees came to have protection from Gen. Chantaraingsey. So with the cooperation of soldiers an people he build many small forts to protect the peasants and their rice field.
