The Cuban embassy in Washington on Sunday night experienced a harrowing incident when an individual launched two Molotov cocktails at the premises, which the Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodriguez, described as a “terrorist attack.”
None of the embassy staff suffered any harm during this disturbing event.
Regrettably, this marked the second assault on the Cuban mission in Washington in recent years, following a shooting incident that occurred in April 2020. Fortunately, there were no injuries resulting from that earlier attack.
In the wake of the attack, Minister Rodriguez pointed out that “anti-Cuban groups resort to terrorism when they feel they enjoy impunity,” underscoring Cuba’s repeated warnings to U.S. authorities regarding such threats.
