Ford condemns ‘sickening’ gun attack on Antrim barracks

Alliance Leader David Ford has expressed shock at news of a gun attack at Massereene Barracks in Antrim. It appears that two military personnel were killed in the incident which took place at around 9.40pm this evening.

David Ford said: “This is a deeply disturbing and extremely sinister attack. This sickening incident appears to have been a drive-by type terrorist attack on military personnel at the gates of Massereene Barracks.

“My thoughts are with victims and their loved ones at this time of shock and deep sadness.

“This attack highlights the real need for an intelligence- based approach to tackling the threat of terrorism. I would appeal to anyone who can assist police with their investigation to contact them immediately. These individuals need to be caught as quickly as possible. Northern Ireland cannot and must not be pushed back towards the precipice.”
