Iranian President: Regional Conflicts Aimed at Diverting Attention from Israeli Crimes
“By behind-the-scene attempts, terror, and creating conflicts among the regional and Muslim world countries and Muslim against Muslim and Muslim against Christian wars in recent years, the Zionists are trying to make others forget their crimes and make the Muslims, the regional people and the world forget the oppressed Palestine and the savagery of the Zionists,” Rouhani said, addressing a cabinet meeting in Tehran on Wednesday.
“We shouldn’t let the Zionists’ big crimes be forgotten, and the oppressed Palestinian nation which has been displaced and forced out of its own home feel disappointment,” he added.
Rouhani called on all Iranian and world nations to show massive turnout in the International Quds Day rallies on Friday.
His remarks came as millions of Muslims across the world are preparing to participate in the International Quds Day rallies on Friday to voice support for the Palestinian nation against the Israeli regime.
The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.
International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Israel’s occupation of Beitul-Muqaddas. Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world, and especially in Iran.
