POLICE SEARCHES IN WEST BELFAST INTO DISSIDENT REPUBLICAN ACTIVITY

A LARGE search is underway by police in west Belfast over a suspected dissident republican terrorist hide.

Detectives from the PSNI’s Terrorist Investigation along with boiler-suited Tactical Support Group officers swooped on the Polegalss area this morning.

They searched a one-mile radius area of overgrown grass and woodland between the Glenwood and Laurel Bank.

Detective Inspector Orr from the Terrorism Investigation Unit added: “The operation is part of an ongoing investigation into dissident republican terrorism.”

Over the past month, TIU detectives have been conducting searches against dissident groups in Benburb, Co Tyrone and in Lurgan, north Belfast, uncovering guns, ammunition and deadly explosives.
