Petrol Bomb Hits Ireland Home, Major Damage Caused

bomb

A petrol bomb was just recenlty hurled at a home in Dublin, Ireland, and the residence has suffered major damage as a result. The incident is said to have occurred at around 2:45am.

Although the front of the home was significantly affected, the 54-year-old woman who was inside at the time is said to have gone unharmed. She was not said to be the intended target; whoever was presumed/hoped to be in the residence at the time of the attack reportedly was not home when it took place.

This is not the first time that this residence was subject to a brutal attack; back on April 6, a total of four gunshots were fired at the property at approximately 11pm. Reports have stated that five people were in the home at the time of this particular incident, but once again no one was harmed. Again, though, excessive damage was caused to the front of the home as a result.

As for who was the actual target of the aforementioned petrol bomb attack, it is believed that a man in his early 20’s who also lives there is the individual someone (or a group) is clearly out to get. No arrests have yet been made, according to authorities.
