On April 30th, 2020, the Embassy of Cuba in the United States was the target of a terrorist attack. Since then, the US government has kept a complicit silence, without condemning or even rejecting such action. It refrains from acting against terrorist individuals and groups based in US territory who are fueling violence against Cuba and its institutions.
The Cuban diplomatic mission was attacked with an AKM assault rifle, resulting in more than 30 bullet impacts on the premises. The intention of the attacker, in his own words, was to kill Cuban diplomats.
