(BosNewsLife) – The Evangelical Alliance Northern Ireland (EANI), warned Monday, August 1, that sectarian violence was still possible in the province despite “the historic peace statement” by the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and it urged its members “to continue praying for genuine peace.” Although the IRA said last week its leadership ordered members to disarm and end the 35-year long violent campaign against British rule, there are still fears that violence and criminality will continue under another name, said the EANI, a platform of evangelical Christians in the area. “It is wrong that for many years the IRA and other paramilitary groups have held their local communities in the grip of terror. Therefore any instruction from the IRA leadership to its members ordering them to cease their armed campaign should be given a cautious welcome,” said EANI General Secretary Stephen Cave in a statement to BosNewsLife.
