Irish Republican Army claim attacks in Britain

The Irish Republican Army has claimed responsibility for attacks last week against civil and military installations in Britain

In a statement provided to the Irish News using a recognised codeword, the Irish Republican Army claimed responsibility for sending the bombs to various locations in England and Scotland.

It claimed that three bombs were sent to commercial targets while the remaining two were posted to those who recruit for the British Army.

The IRA stated that anti personnel explosives discovered at Glasgow University was intended for a British army recruiter who works there.

All of the anti personnel packages contained explosives, the IRA statement declared.

Major disruption was caused after three of the packages were discovered at Heathrow Airport, London City Airport and Waterloo train station.

The anti personnel explosives sent to Heathrow Airport burst into flames when opened, while the other two were dealt with by the British army bomb squad.

The stamps used on the explosives appeared to have an ironic message as they featured a heart symbol and the words “Love Eire”.

It is not the first time in this stage of the ongoing struggle that the Irish Republican Army has targeted Britain or indeed their recruitment centres.

In February 2014 the IRA claimed responsibility for sending devices to seven British military recruitment offices across the south east of England.

It is clear that this is an unfinished revolution!
