TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The international circles are not reliable bodies for restoring Palestinians’ rights, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said, adding that the Palestinian nation can restore their rights through unity and resistance.
He reiterated that Muslims need to stand united against the Zionist regime.
The president further referred to the Zionist regime’s atrocities in its 18-day offensive against the Gaza Strip, and said those who have remained silent over these crimes are going to be ashamed before history.
People in Tehran took to the streets in their millions on Friday morning to attend massive rallies to mark the International Quds Day and voice support for the Palestinian nation amid Israel’s continued onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip.
The mass rallies in Tehran are held concurrently with the nationwide demonstrations to condemn the atrocities and crimes committed by Israel against people of Palestine.
The event’s overarching theme is support for the Palestinians and fierce denunciation of Israel.
The day is also seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who officially declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as International Quds Day back in 1979.
This year’s rallies came against the backdrop of a massive Israeli onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip.
Over 800 Palestinians have been killed and more than 5,200 have been injured in 18 days of Israeli attacks.
