TEHRAN (Rahnuma): Iranians held nationwide rallies in support of Palestinians to mark the al-Quds (Jerusalem) Day on Friday.
In the capital Tehran, the Iranians carried banners and chanted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.”
They also pronounced their solidarity with Palestinians and urged the international organizations to stop Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and its “atrocities” against the Palestinians.
Besides, the ralliers slammed the so-called U.S. peace plan of the “Deal of the Century” concerning Israel-Palestine disputes, which will be revealed in June.
The U.S. peace plan only “secures the interests of Israel,” they said.
Senior Iranian officials, including President Hassan Rouhani and the Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, joined the rallies.
In the past days, Iranian authorities urged Muslims worldwide to hold massive rallies on Friday to mark the al-Quds Day in support of the Palestinians.
Al-Quds Day is an annual event observed on the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in Iran and several Arab countries to support the Palestinian cause.
