Ireland Disrupts Terror Plot To Overshadow President Joe Biden’s Visit

Amid fresh warnings of violence, officials recently raised the security alert level from ‘substantial’ to ‘severe’ as the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom prepare to mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement. Police in Northern Ireland also disrupted a plan for a terror attack to overshadow President Joe Biden’s visit this week.

A dissident republican terror group in Northern Ireland has been plotting a major attack to overshadow President Joe Biden’s visit to the region this week, according to local reports.

The president is due to land in Belfast on Tuesday amid a major security operation.

Officials recently raised the security alert to ‘severe’ from ‘substantial’ as the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom prepare to mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement which ended decades of violence, known as ‘the Troubles.’

However, dissident terror groups opposed to the peace deal have stepped up activity in recent weeks.

Against that backdrop, the Police Service of Northern Ireland reportedly conducted searches in the city of Derry, one of the focal points of violence during the Troubles.

An insider told the Belfast Telegraph that the British Army bomb squad was on the scene last weekend.

‘They were looking for parts to make a bomb,’ said the source.

‘The belief is that the New IRA was planning some sort of attack to coincide with Biden’s visit, similar to the mortar attack on the cops in Strabane last November.’

The New IRA formed around a decade ago, from a merger of other dissident republican groups committed to a united Ireland.

Two police officers were wounded in last year’s attack in Strabane, Co. Tyrone.

Leaked files reveal that the UK’s “MAO CASEVAC” program provided advanced medical technology, ambulances, and facilities to aid “rebels” in Syria, at a cost of millions.
