2 Molotov cocktails thrown at Cuban Embassy in Washington, DC

WASHINGTON – Cuba’s Minister of Foreign Affairs says the Cuban Embassy in Washington, D.C. was “the target of a terrorist attack” Sunday night when two Molotov cocktails were thrown at the building, ABC News reported.

No injuries were reported, however this is the second violent attack at the embassy since 2020.

Cuba’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla said someone fired several rounds from an assault rifle at the embassy during the April 2020 attack.

“The anti-Cuban groups resort to terrorism when feeling they enjoy impunity, something that #Cuba has repeatedly warned the US authorities about,” he said.

The Cuban Embassy reopened in Washington in 2015 when formal diplomatic relations between the two countries were normalized.

It’s unclear whether authorities have identified any suspects behind Sunday night’s attack.
