The British authorities have moved special forces soldiers to Northern Ireland to fight riots, the Mirror newspaper reported, citing informed sources.

According to media reports, at least eight fighters have been sent undercover to the site and will work with the MI5 Service, which is in charge of suppressing the unrest.

The and clashes between nationalists and supporters of the British government in Northern Ireland lasted more than a week, and they began in areas that support the government.

The discontent of the loyalists was caused by the refusal of the prosecutor’s office to reject claims against the organizers of the magnificent funeral of one of the veterans of the Irish Republican Army, Bobby Storey, which was held in 2020 at the height of the  pandemic.

Subsequently, Irish nationalists advocating the unification of the British region with an independent Ireland also took to the streets.
