About 50 people of Armenian origin, who were holding a rally in front of Azerbaijan’s Embassy in Lebanon, broke through the fence around the administrative building and threw bottles of paint and explosives into the building, the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan said in a statement, News.Az reports.
As a result of the attack, the embassy staff were not injured. As soon as the department responsible for the protection of diplomatic missions was informed about the incident, law enforcement agencies arrived at the scene, but at that time the provocateurs managed to escape from the scene.
“In order to identify and arrest criminals for the attack on the embassy, a corresponding note has been sent to the Lebanese Foreign Ministry and appropriate measures are being taken.
Currently, the security around the building is on alert, while a crime investigation is underway,” the Foreign Ministry said.
