In the statement made by the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Azerbaijan, it was announced that the embassy buildings in Lebanon were attacked.
The statement said that about 50 Armenians gathered in front of the embassy, broke the fence around the administrative building, and threw paint bottles and explosives into the building.
Embassy personnel were not injured in the attack. After the attack was reported to the security forces, Lebanese law enforcement officers were deployed to the region, while the Armenian attackers reportedly fled the scene.
While an investigation was launched into the incident, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry sent a note to the Lebanese Foreign Ministry, which is responsible for the security of the Embassy.
In Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, Tayar Okden, a Turkish lorry driver, was attacked and beaten in the Bourj Hammoud neighborhood where Armenians predominantly live.
Okden, 52, was trying to leave the neighborhood after unloading cargo at a workplace in Bourj Hammoud at night when a group of people blocked his way.
A group of about 20 people, who said they were Armenian, beat Okden and poured paint on him. They broke the windows of the lorry and wrote insults against Türkiye in English.
The crowd also punctured the tires of the vehicle with knives and kicked the parcels containing commercial materials in the truck to the ground.
