A massive wave of anti-immigrant protests have broken out on the streets of Dublin, Ireland following a shocking incident earlier Thursday as five people, including three young children, were injured in a stabbing near a school in Dublin city center. According to protesters on the streets, the perpetrator is believed to be an immigrant of Algerian descent.

The attack, which took place shortly after 1:30 pm, led to a five-year-old girl and a woman in her 30s being treated for serious injuries.

Following the incident, protests erupted near the attack site, with crowds gathering around Parnell Square, Parnell Street, and O’Connell Street. The Garda public order unit was deployed to manage the situation as some protesters engaged in scuffles with the Gardaí, and others threw bottles at officers.

Superintendent Liam Geraghty, addressing the media, confirmed that the five-year-old girl was receiving emergency medical treatment and that the incident appears to be a standalone attack, not currently being treated as terror-related.

Additionally, a five-year-old boy, a six-year-old girl, and a man in his 50s also sustained less serious injuries, with the boy later being discharged from the Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin Hospital.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar announced that a suspect has been detained in connection with the attack. He commended the quick response of the emergency services and mentioned that the police are following a definite line of inquiry.

“The facts in this matter are still emerging. The emergency services responded very quickly and were on site within minutes. I thank them for that,” he said.

Sky News’ Ireland correspondent, Stephen Murphy, reported that eyewitnesses saw a man, allegedly wielding a knife, attacking several young people as they left an Irish-speaking primary school. Bystanders reportedly intervened to help bring the situation under control.

Mary Lou McDonald, leader of the opposition party Sinn Fein and a representative of Dublin Central, expressed the community’s horror and shock at the unexpected violence, particularly in a school setting. She extended her prayers for the full recovery of those affected.

Helen McEntee, Irish Justice Minister, described the attack as “appalling” and expressed her deep shock. She conveyed her sympathies to the injured, especially the children and their families, during this challenging time.
