Iranians stage rallies nationwide to mark Intl. Quds Day

Iranian people held massive rallies across the country on International Quds Day in solidarity with the Palestinians and condemnation of Israeli atrocities against them.

Millions of people took part in the International Quds Day rallies across Iran and other Muslim countries to show their solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian people and condemn Israeli atrocities and acts of aggression against Palestinians in the occupied territories.

The rallies in Iran, organized by the Islamic Propagation Coordination Council (IPCC), started at 10 a.m. local time (0630 GMT) in Tehran and over 900 cities across the countryon Friday.

The rallies were held to mark Quds Day, which falls on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan and was initiated by the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini.

People from all walks of life have gathered for the annual event, holding placards with slogans that read Down with Israel, Down with the USA to show their contempt for the racist policies of Israel and the US support for the regime.

The demonstrators, in a final communiqu, described unity and solidarity within the Muslim world as the key to triumph over global arrogant powers and their conspiracies, emphasizing that the Axis of Resistance has confounded Zionists and driven the corrupt and far-right administration of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to despair.
