Millions of Iranians staged massive rallies in Tehran and other cities on Friday to condemn continued occupation of the Palestinian territories by the Zionist regime and show strong support for Palestinians against Israel on the International Quds Day.
The late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in August 1979 declared the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan as Quds Day, calling for international rallies in support of Palestinians and against Israel.
Iranians marched nationwide, namely in Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz and Mashhad, in opposition to the continued occupation of the holy lands by the Zionist regime.
In Tehran, millions of people gathered for the march, chanting ‘Death to Israel’ and holding anti-Israeli and anti-American signs.
Protesters unanimously condemned Zionists’ crimes in the Palestinian occupied lands.
The fasting people carrying placards chanted ‘Down with the US’ and ‘Down with Israel’ and other anti-Zionist slogans.
They voiced the Iranian nation’s readiness to defend the ideals of Palestine and remove the cancerous tumor from the face of the world.
People also protested at the silence of the international community and the so-called advocates of the human rights against the crimes committed in the occupied lands.
