Iranians, other people in world mark Intl. Quds Day

People in Iran and other countries are marking the International Quds Day with huge rallies on Friday.

The Quds Day rallies this year are of special importance as the Zionist regime of Israel’s genocidal war against the people of Palestine in the invaded Gaza Strip is ongoing after six months.

International Quds Day is considered the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who is revered as a spiritual leader by Muslims worldwide.

In 1979, shortly after leading an Islamic revolution that toppled the US-backed Shah of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini named the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan Quds Day.

A funeral was held on the sidelines of the rallies in the capital Tehran for the seven IRGC military advisors who were martyred on Monday in a Zionist Israeli regime’s airstrike on the Iranian Consulate in Damascus, the capital of Syria.

Major General Hossein Salami is scheduled to address the rallies in Tehran before the start of the Friday Prayers.

The Israeli regime continues the war, despite the UN Security Council passing a resolution, calling for an immediate cease-fire during Ramadan and Tel Aviv appearing before the International Court of Justice for the first time on charges of “genocide” against the Palestinians.

The death toll from Israel’s war on Gaza has risen to 33,000, the Palestinian Health Ministry said in a statement on Friday, while more than 75 other people have been injured since October 7, 2023.
