Protesters Torch Israel Embassy in Mexico over Rafah Massacre

30 May 2024 02:18

Islam Times - Angry demonstrators have torched the Israeli embassy in Mexico City to denounce the ongoing Israeli genocide in Gaza after clashes erupted between law enforcement and protesters.

Pro-Palestinian protesters participated in the "Urgent action for Rafah" and voiced their outrage at the embassy of the Israeli occupation, which was set on fire by protesters with the use of Molotov cocktails.

Protesters concealed their identities and hurled stones at the riot police in retaliation to their crackdown against the protest by obstructing their way to the compound and tear-gassing them.

A clash with law enforcement ensued when a group of demonstrators attempted to dismantle the barriers obstructing their access to the diplomatic mission.

There were unverified reports of several people injured in the chaos.

Mexico, on Tuesday, filed an intervention declaration in South Africa's case accusing Israel of "genocide" at the International Court of Justice.

Similar protests were observed throughout the world following Sunday evening’s Israeli attack on a refugee camp in Rafah, considered as a safe zone, which killed at least 50 people.

Thousands of protesters also gathered around the Israeli consulate in Istanbul on Monday night, and torched the Zionist mission in Turkey by hauling Molotov cocktails, setting fire to the vicinity of the embassy, in protest at the barbaric massacre.

Following the deadly bombings, Israeli minister of military affairs Yoav Gallant announced on Sunday that the Israeli occupation forces will persist in its military operation in Rafah.
