East Belfast UVF attack Catholic homes in the Short Strand with blast bomb.

Local Saoradh activists are on the ground in the Short Strand, where the UVF have thrown a blast bomb into Clandeboye from the adjacent loyalist Cluan Place.

PSNI militiamen have insultingly remarked to residents that the “night will only get worse” for the besieged community.

We advise local residents to stay vigilant and alert in the face of this unprovoked State-sponsored loyalist aggression.
