The Cuban embassy in the US on Sunday evening was the target of a terrorist attack by an individual, who launched two Molotov cocktails, Cuban foreign minister Bruno Rodriguez has said on X (formerly Twitter) shortly after the claimed incident, blaming the US authorities for failing to act against groups hostile to Cuban government.
Noting that none of the embassy workers were hurt in the attack, Rodriguez stressed that anti-Cuba groups in the United States resort to terrorism because they feel they enjoy impunity, something that Cuba has repeatedly warned the US authorities.
This is the second attack on the Cuban Embassy in the US since the two countries reestablished diplomatic relations in 2015. Previously in April 2020, the Cuban mission in Washington was attacked by a Cuban-born man using an AK-47-type rifle.
Previously in New York, Cuban immigrants organized small-scale protests marching through Manhattan against the Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who visited the UN General Assembly, and chanting “Freedom for Cuba” and “Down with Communism.”
