A group of Lebanese citizens of Armenian origin attacked the security forces, with stones and fireworks, in front of the Turkish embassy in Beirut.
This came Monday evening, during a demonstration organized by members of the Armenian Tashnak party, which is active in Lebanon, to protest Turkey’s support for Azerbaijan, which is struggling to liberate its occupied territories by Armenia.
The demonstrators, who are estimated at 200, tried to storm the Turkish embassy, but the security forces deployed around the embassy intensively, prevented them from doing so.
After they were prevented from entering the embassy, members of the group that waved Armenian flags attacked the security forces with stones and fireworks.
The demonstrators chanted slogans against Turkey and Azerbaijan for about an hour, and burned the flags of Azerbaijan, Turkey and Israel, and left the area via buses that they came on board.
Since 1992, Armenia occupies about 20 percent of the Azerbaijani lands. It includes the Karabakh region and 5 other provinces in the west of the country, in addition to large parts of the Aghdam and Fadhuli provinces.
