If I had to guess, probably it was referring to the PIRA's South Armagh Brigade only. South Armagh was pretty much the hardest area for the British Army and the RUC to control. Both the PIRA and...

I actually have written about this particular conflict, plus I was in Belfast in 2007. I can tell you quite a bit on this:
