Over 20 policemen injured in attack on Azerbaijani embassy in Beirut by ethnic Armenians

    WORLD  30 September 2023 - 09:26

    Following yesterday's (September 28) attack on security forces by a group of people of Armenian origin gathered outside the Azerbaijani embassy in the Lebanese capital Beirut, 25 police officers were injured.

    The Lebanese Internal Security Forces, affiliated with the Interior Ministry, issued a written statement about the events that occurred after a group of approximately 1,500 people of Armenian origin tried to march to the Azerbaijani Embassy on September 28 but were not allowed to enter the building, Anadolu reports.

    A statement published by the official Lebanese agency NNA noted that during the protest action organized by Lebanese citizens of Armenian origin, 25 security officers were injured, two of whom were seriously injured.

    The statement notes that the security forces, in accordance with “Article 1 of the Law on the Organization of Internal Security Forces,” are responsible for the protection of diplomatic missions. The document calls on citizens to respect the law and act in a spirit of responsibility.

    During the protest, which included violent and destructive actions, the protesters threw fireworks, rocks, sticks, glass bottles, and objects containing colored paints at security forces.

    On September 28 evening in Beirut, a group of about 1,500 people of Armenian origin protesting Azerbaijan's liberation of occupied territories in Karabakh tried to march to the embassy.

    At the beginning of the street where the embassy is located, security forces set up a barricade and did not allow the crowd belonging to the Armenian Dashnaksutyun party in Lebanon to pass.

    When police prevented the protesters from passing through a barricade, protesters attacked security forces. Police responded by using tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd.
