Upper Bann DUP MP Carla Lockhart has congratulated the police and security services on a joint operation against republican terrorists across the British Isles.
Carla Lockhart said,
“There are still republican terrorists operating throughout the country but a concentrated grouping has always operated around Lurgan in my constituency therefore I welcome this operation.
Indeed even on Sunday there has been disruption by republican sympathisers in the area through a bomb alert.
The proactive operation against these terrorists is reassurance for everyone but most significantly those who have been and continue to be targeted, that terrorism is being confronted and tackled.
The covert operation to infiltrate and undermine the terrorists seems to have been a success but the real test will be if prosecutions can be secured.
Any right minded person will see this as a win for everyone.
Whilst some warped people sympathise with republican terrorists, maiming and murder is wrong. It doesn’t matter who is going to carry it out. It has always been wrong. We need to deal with these mindsets especially amongst this generation.
If anyone locally has information, no matter how insignificant they think it might be, then they should call the anonymous confidential hotline and help the police make our community safer."
