Fight between Turks, Turkish-born Lebanese reported in Lebanon

PanARMENIAN.Net - A fight occurred between the bodyguards of Turkish public security forces official Serdar Kilic and residents of a village of Al-Bireh in the north of Lebanon.

As the editor-in-chief of Beirut-based Aztag daily Shahan Kandaharian told PanARMENIAN.Net Kilic and a former head of administration had difficulty stopping the skirmish.

The fight was caused by Kilic’s decision to cancel his visit to the village, instead opting to continue his way to Aintab, a village with a majority of Turkish population. “The clash reveals actual relationship between Ankara and Turkish-populated villages of Lebanon,” Kandaharian said. -
