A SUSPICIOUS OBJECT found at the Israeli embassy in Dublin this morning has been declared a false alarm, the Defence Forces has said.

The army bomb disposal team arrived at the embassy on Pembroke Road in Dublin 4 shortly after 11 o’clock this morning following a request from the gardaí at the scene.

The bomb squad investigated the suspicious object before declaring it a false alarm at around 11.30am. The embassy did not have to be evacuated during the assessment.

A spokesperson for the Defence Forces said they were satisfied that there was no sinister intent involved but that the actions of security personnel at the scene had been prudent in the circumstances.
