Turkey summons Lebanon envoy

ANKARA: Turkey’s Foreign Ministry summoned the Lebanese ambassador after protesters unfurled an anti-Turkish banner on its embassy in Beirut, state media reported on Friday.
The meeting with Ambassador Ghassan Mouallem on Thursday came several hours after a small group of Lebanese protesters hung out the banner, which featured an image of death mixed with the Turkish flag.
The foreign ministry denounced “these provocative acts” to the ambassador and called for quick action to protect Turkish interests in Lebanon, according to news agency Anadolu.
