Anti-genocide protesters in Mexico City throw firebombs at Israeli embassy
By Kevin Hughes // Jun 03, 2024

Anti-genocide protestors have set fire to the Israeli embassy in Mexico City after clashing with riot police.

About 200 people assembled outside the compound in the Lomas de Chapultepec district on Tuesday, May 28, for the "Urgent Action for Rafah" demonstration. An Israeli airstrike killed at least 45 Palestinians in Rafah on Sunday, May 26.

Demonstrators wearing scarves over their faces threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at the riot police and attacked the barricade constructed to block their entry to the embassy. Videos shared on social media show police struggling to snuff out the burning wall of the compound, with protesters attempting to set the embassy on fire and fighting with the security forces.

"Mexican protesters escalate outside the Israeli embassy in Mexico City, starting a fire, trying to break through the fence, and throwing Molotov cocktails in protest against Israel's brutal war on Gaza," Palestine and MENA Info Center wrote on X.

The Cradle also posted on X: "In protest against Israel's genocide in Gaza, Mexican protesters escalate outside the Israeli embassy in Mexico City, starting a fire, trying to break through the fence, and throwing Molotov cocktails."

"Clashes erupt at Mexico City protest against Israel’s war on Gaza. Protestors are trying to set the Israeli embassy on fire!" said an X user named Lord Bebo.

Meanwhile, 18 Mexico City police officers were wounded by Molotov cocktails and objects thrown by the pro-Palestine activists at the demonstration outside the Israeli embassy. Sixteen of the officers were reportedly taken to the hospital for burns and other injuries, while two other officers were treated in the vicinity for minor injuries.

Numerous fires were set in the area of the embassy, and five bus stations, many businesses, a police vehicle and park benches were damaged. The Israeli Foreign Ministry reported that none of its staff were injured, and claimed that the damage to the embassy was only minor.

Mexican Police said protesters, some of them masked, clashed with the police who established a cordon.

Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Mexico, which called for the protest in reply to a deadly airstrike on Gazan internally displaced people in Rafah, charged the police with brutality against demonstrators.

They alleged that the police used tear gas, handled fire extinguishers and threw stones and other objects at the protesters, who included children, seniors and disabled people.

"We reiterate our solidarity with the Palestinian people and all the people who demonstrated in support of their cause. We will not stop speaking out against injustice and oppression, both here and anywhere in the world," Comité de Solidaridad con Palestina GDL declared on Instagram Wednesday, May 29.
