The attack, in which two petrol bombs were used, was carried out shortly after midnight in the Glenvara Drive area.

“Any kind of attack like this must be strongly and roundly condemned,” Ms Sugden said.

“Those behind this targeted and cold-blooded attack must be brought to justice.

“It is simply unacceptable. People have the right to live without the fear of this kind of violence and it is sheer good fortune that no-one was injured – or worse – in this incident.

“Our communities deserve better than this and I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything, to contact police on 101 quoting reference 4 of 20/06/22.”
