THE dissident terror faction Oglaigh na hEireann has claimed the bomb attack on a PSNI vehicle on Wednesday.

And they have warned they are planning more attacks on police.

The claim was made to security journalist Brian Rowan

In the statement the group said it “patiently waited and ambushed the PSNI” with what has been described as a grenade.

A device was thrown at officers in the Whin Park area shortly after midnight on Wednesday, as PSNI responded to an emergency call.

Two family cars sustained most of the damage. Shrapnel smashed through the window of a third vehicle, which was parked across the street, then pierced the headrest of the driver’s seat.

Police said it was fortunate that no one had been injured or killed in the attack.
