Hundreds of Armenian demonstrators gathered in downtown Beirut on Thursday to protest Turkish premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Lebanon. Some angry protesters even started to rip down billboards of the Turkish leader that had been mounted in the city center.
Descendents of those who survived the Armenian Genocide, the Lebanese Armenians demanded that Turkey finally come to terms with their history and recognize the mass killings of Armenians during World War I as genocide. But consecutive Turkish governments have so far refused to do so. One and half million Armenians died between 1915-1917, when they were expelled from their historic homeland in the Ottoman Empire.
