A handout picture released by the official website of the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani shows him attending  Quds (Jerusalem) Day demonstration in Tehran on July 25, 2014. Iranians rallied nationwide on Friday in a show of support for Palestinians and to protest against Israel as the Jewish state pursued its deadly campaign against the Gaza Strip enclave. The Islamic republic holds Quds Day rallies in support of the Palestinians every year since the early 1980s on the last Friday of Ramadan, but this year's demonstrations came on the 18th day of Israel's deadly campaign in Gaza which has so far killed more than 800 Palestinians.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani says Muslims from the four corners of the world will show, on International Quds Day, that they will not forget Palestine.

“All Muslims in the world concertedly seek the freedom of the occupied Palestinian territories,” Rouhani said on Wednesday, adding that on the International Quds Day, Muslims aim to send the message that despite the oppression against the Palestinian nation and the silence of certain entities, “Muslims will forget neither the Palestinian nation nor al-Quds.”

Rouhani added that on the International Quds Day, the Muslim community, in support of the Palestinian resistance against the Israeli regime, will, in a sense, “voice their unity.”

He further referred to the widespread acts of terrorism in the Middle East region, saying that one of the benefits of terrorist groups for superpowers and the regime of Israel is to divert the attention of Muslims from the issue of the freedom of al-Quds.
He further expressed hope that Muslims will honorably mark the event this year with their mass participation.
