“Millions” of Iranians Mark Al-Quds Day

Untitled2

Iranians took part in huge rallies across the country on Friday to show solidarity with Palestinians, urging them to keep up their struggle despite the Israeli assault on Gaza.

They carried pictures of Palestinian children killed in Gaza, along with banners reading “Defending Gaza and Palestine is our religious duty.”

State media said “millions” of people joined the rallies nationwide, called to mark Iran’s annual day of solidarity with Palestinians, al-Quds Day, on the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The Iranian government has condemned Israel’s offensive against Gaza, which has killed more than 800 people, most of them civilians. It has also expressed support for the Islamist group Hamas, which rules Gaza.
