Police are investigating a mortar attack and the firing of a shot at a PSNI patrol in west Belfast last Friday.
Searches were carried out by the PSNI in the Glen Road area on Wednesday morning relating to the attack on police which happened at around 4am on Friday 27 July.
Nothing untoward was found as a result of the searches.
Two days ago, on Monday, police confirmed that a shot had hit a PSNI vehicle in the area known as the turning circle at the top of the Glen Road – but they have now confirmed a mortar attack is also being investigated.
It is understood officers were on routine patrol at the time. No-one was hurt but their vehicle was slightly damaged.
The attack is being viewed by police as a “potentially murderous”.
The Glen Road between Hannahstown Hill junction and Shaws Road junction was closed for a time, but has now been reopened.
Police are continuing to investigate the incident and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
