SDLP Councillor Brian Tierney has condemned those responsible for targeting firefighters in the Galliagh area of the city on Sunday night.
Colr. Tierney was speaking after a series of episodes across Derry on Sunday night.
Pallets and rubbish were set alight and dragged on to roads in the Bogside and Galliagh areas, with the PSNI and fire-fighters coming under attack in different points during the evening.
Fire-fighters attending a blaze at Glengalliagh Road had missiles thrown at their vehicle, although the Fire Service have confirmed there were no injuries.
Colr Tierney said: “Over the Twelfth, the city’s firefighters are placed under incredible strain. I want to thank them for their selfless work to keep people and property safe.
“I was shocked to hear that a number of firefighters came under attack in the Galliagh area after pallets were dragged into the middle of a road and set alight.
“Those behind it clearly had no regard for the hard work that the fire service undertakes to keep them and their communities safe. I would urge anyone with any information to bring it forward to the police.”
Colr. Tierney added: “Firefighters deserve our respect and thanks, they should not be the targets of crime and anti-social behaviour.”
