Declaració de l'IRA oferint les seves disculpes i condolències als familiars de les "víctimes no combatents" que han causat:

A statement from the leadership of Oglaigh na hEireann [IRA] was received by An Phoblacht this Tuesday afternoon.

The following is the full text of the statement.


"Sunday 21 July marks the 30th anniversary of an IRA operation in Belfast in 1972 which resulted in nine people
being killed and many more injured.

While it was not our intention to injure or kill non-combatants, the reality is that on this and on a number of
other occasions, that was the consequence of our actions.

It is, therefore, appropriate on the anniversary of this tragic event, that we address all of the deaths and
injuries of non-combatants caused by us. We offer our sincere apologies and condolences to their families.

There have been fatalities amongst combatants on all sides. We also acknowledge the grief and pain of their

The future will not be found in denying collective failures and mistakes or closing minds and hearts to the
plight of those who have been hurt. That includes all of the victims of the conflict, combatants and non-combatants.

It will not be achieved by creating a hierarchy of victims in which some are deemed more or less worthy than

The process of conflict resolution requires the equal acknowledgement of the grief and loss of others.

On this anniversary, we are endeavouring to fulfil this responsibility to those we have hurt.

The IRA is committed unequivocally to the search for freedom, justice and peace in Ireland. We remain totally
committed to the peace process and to dealing with the challenges and difficulties which this presents. This includes the
acceptance of past mistakes and of the hurt and pain we have caused to others."
