Scuffles as Lebanese Armenians Rally at Turkish Embassy


Lebanese Armenian students and the youth sector of the Tashnag Party staged a protest Monday outside the Turkish embassy in Rabieh.

The protesters condemned “the breach of the truce agreement between Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan and Turkey’s support for Azerbaijan in the conflict (with Armenia) over the region,” the National News Agency said.

“Protesters hurled stones and firecrackers at security forces tasked with protecting the embassy as scuffles erupted between the two sides,” NNA added.

Armenians should go to Armenia and demonstrate outside the Turkish embassy and not in Lebanon.

Why not!? Is it a violent demonstration? Lebanon is a democratic nation not an obscure dictatorship. Moreover, Armenian community is represented in Parliament and part of our social composition.

Good point warrior. We, Lebanese, won’t chose between Turkey or Armenia. It’s none of our darn business.

Just like the HA involvement in Syria was none of our business.

Zahlé, Hizbala was sending terrorists from Lebanon to Syria and Iraq.

Here it’s Armenians, Turks and Azeris fighting far away from Lebanon. We’re not involved in any way and we don’t support one side over another. Nagorny karabakh should be considered autonomous, and it should not be associated with either sides even if its majority are ethnic Armenians.

Do you want to be called Lebanese or Syrian as some alway claim? No we’re independent...

Putin will put the conflict on hold soon, don’t worry for them.
