An attempted petrol bomb attack in County Fermanagh has been condemned by Fermanagh South Tyrone MLAs.

The attempted attack was described as "disgraceful" by DUP MLA Deborah Erskine as she condemned the attack which took place over the weekend in Lisnaskea. 

Three men wearing balaclavas threw a petrol bomb at a property in Fermanagh in the early hours of Sunday morning [April 7]. The Police Service of Northern Ireland are appealing for details. 

Condemning the attack, Mrs Erskine said: "This is absolutely disgraceful. Men in balaclavas carrying out sinister acts should be in the past. Truly shocking that this act took place in Lisnaskea, of which the community will be resolute in their condemnation."

"Dread to think what could have been as a result of this despicable act, which will have no doubt caused fear and concern to the victims and the community."

She appealed for anyone with information to bring it forward to the PSNI. 

Also condemning the attack was Sinn Féin MLA Áine Murphy also condemned the attack. 

The Fermanagh South Tyrone MLA said: "This petrol bomb attack on a house in Trasna Way, Lisnaskea was dangerous and reckless.

"Thankfully no one was injured in this incident. 

"I would urge anyone with information on this incident should bring it forward to the PSNI."

Inspector Taylor of the PSNI said: "We received a report just after 1.20am that three men in balaclavas had arrived in a dark-coloured vehicle and thrown a petrol bomb at a property in Trasna Way.

"Thankfully, this failed to ignite, however, two windows were smashed at the front of the property, which was unoccupied at the time. 

“We are appealing to anyone with information regarding this incident to contact police by calling 101, quoting reference 127 07/04/24."
