TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of the Intifada and Holy Quds Central Office in Iran Ramadan Sharif underlined the importance of this year’s International Quds Day rallies, stressing that massive worldwide rallies on Quds Day means that an international consensus has been attained over defending the Palestinians in their struggle against Israel.
“The International Quds Day shows this great truth that the arrogant front and Zionism are completely isolated among the world freedom-seeking nations,” Sharif said, addressing a conference in Tehran on Sunday.
“We are witnessing the formation of a great international consensus on the Palestinian issue,” he added.
The last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan is dubbed as ‘the international Quds Day’ during which worldwide Muslims and non-Muslims (including anti-Zionist Jews) stage demonstrations to voice their strong protest and outrage at the occupying regime of Israel.
The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of Quds to Muslims.
