The Police Service of Northern Ireland has said it did not find anything during a search of a property in Derry as part of its investigation into the New IRA.
The PSNI’s Terrorism Investigation Unit conducted a “proactive policing operation” in the Letterkenny Road area.
Detective Inspector O’Flaherty said: “We understand the impact operational activity can have upon the day-to-day lives of local residents, please be assured we seek to maximise safety and minimise any disruption with any planned activity. Our primary focus is keeping our community safe.
“We are grateful for the continued support of local communities as we continue our work to disrupt those involved in terrorism-related activity. We encourage anyone with information, or concerns, to contact us on 101.”
Alternatively, information can be provided to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
The New IRA has been the most active of the dissident republican outfits in Northern Ireland in recent years.
The terrorism threat level in Northern Ireland was recently raised from substantial to severe, meaning an attack is highly likely. – PA
