The incident occurred in the municipality where one of the U.S. Embassy buildings is located. When U.S. diplomats learned of the incident, they criticized the local authorities.
“While U.S. Ambassador [U.S. Ambassador David] Freedman is defending annexation in the United States, are you invading our sovereign territory here?” – commented on the incident by an embassy employee on Channel 12.
