The self-declared nonconformist group as “IRA” in Northern Ireland has admitted the responsibility for sending four small parcel bombs through the mail to London and Glasgow, as per the information of the British police.
The claim, which raised five packages which were received on Belfast-based daily, The Irish News. Police told an identified codeword was used. Metropolitan Police told in a statement about the discovery of the bombs on between 5th March and 6th March, “ The claim was allegedly made on behalf of the ‘IRA’”.
He also added, “inquiries are being made in relation to the claim. Given the packages received last week bore similarities to devices sent in the past which were linked to dissident groups associated with Northern Ireland-related terrorism, officers were already looking at this as a line of inquiry.”
The Irish Republican Army paramilitary group attempted to find the unification of Northern Ireland into the Republic of Ireland through the ongoing violence.
The convention of using code words in telephonic alerts raised after the bombing campaign of IRA in the early 1970s, for marking them from possible deceptions.
In 1997, IRA invited a final ceasefire and declared an end of its active armed campaign in 2005, describing that it would want to follow the peaceful political way to reach to its aims.
Nonconformist splinter groups have sought to continue. On 5th March, skeptical packages were discovered at an office block next to London at the Heathrow Airport, in the post room at London Waterloo railway terminus, and at offices near London City Airport.
In the following day, an additional skeptical package was found at the University at Glasgow. Though nobody was injured and police have made no arrests.
The security services of Britain consider that the current threatening level for Northern Ireland-related intimidation in mainland Britain is indifferent, the second-lowest of five levels. Northern Ireland pondered the threat level as a severe attempt.
