Reuters news agency reported that six boys have been rescued, citing a senior member of the medical team involved in the rescue. A Thai Navy SEAL commander told reporters he believed there was "a limited amount of time" left to rescue the soccer team.
Depending on weather and water conditions, the entire operation to get all 13 members of the team out of the cave could last two to four days, according to army Maj.
"All conditions are still as good as they were yesterday", Narongsak told a news conference.
On their earlier rescue mission As per sources, divers are expected to resume the mission by today, July 9.
Four boys among a group of 13 trapped in a flooded Thai cave reached the rescue base camp inside the complex on Sunday and will walk out soon, the country's defense ministry spokesman told AFP.
The day's operation started at 11 a.m. after divers finished reinstalling oxygen tanks and doing rope checks along the exit route that includes flooded narrow passageways. But it began raining heavily just after the first boys were rescued.

Text in the video said , "He's back as you've never seen him before". It's unclear if the teased Trump-related project is that same film.
Another concern for the remaining boys is their health and conditioning to make the arduous trip after nine days without food before they were found by navy divers.
Officials have not yet named the boys who were rescued, not even to the parents of the group, according to Namhom Boonpiam, the mother of one of the boys.
The other, and perhaps more worrying, was that oxygen levels in the complex were falling close to risky levels.
The first, almost 1km-long section from where the boys have been huddling in darkness is believed to be the most hard, requiring a long dive and crawling through mud and debris, with some crevices barely wide enough for a person. All four were rushed to a hospital 65km away in Chiang Rai.
