Millions of people across the globe are preparing to hit the streets
Friday to mark International Quds Day, an annual event expressing
support for the Palestinian resistance against Israel.
This year's protests coincide with Israel's brutal
attacks on the blockaded Gaza Strip, which
entered its 18th day.
In Palestine, citizens
staged a rally outside the
Old City of East al-Quds
Thursday to voice their
anger at the recent bloodshed
in Gaza, before
Israeli forces clashed with
the protestors, with
some even being arrested.
In Syria, Palestinian refugees along with Syrians
staged a sit-in to denounce the Israeli onslaught
on the impoverished Gaza.
A number of Iraqi cities are also taking part in the Quds Day
demonstrations to stand in solidarity with Palestine. Iraqi protestors
waved flags and banners, condemning Israeli attacks and criticizing
the international silence on the war in Gaza.
Millions of Iranians have
taken to the streets in the
capital Tehran and more
than 770 other towns and
cities throughout the country,
to once again vent their
anger at the Israeli regime’s
brutal oppression of
Palestinians over the past decades.
Pakistani protesters are also rallying and praying in support of
Gazans during special prayers that are held in all Friday sermons
at mosques across the country.
In Lebanon, Palestinian and Hezbollah flags were raised during
demonstrations on the eve of the International Quds Day to
denounce Israeli crimes. In the Southern village of Marwahin
bordering occupied Palestine, a scholarly solidarity vigil was
held in support of Gaza in which Sunni and Shiites scholars took part.
In Beirut's southern suburb, Hezbollah has also called for a huge
ceremony celebrating the occasion Friday, where Hezbollah's
Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is set to deliver a speech.
Hezbollah had decided to call this year’s Quds Day “Quds Day and
Solidarity with Gaza: People and Resistance.”
Anti-Israeli demonstrations are also to be held in Canada, France,
Italy, Spain, and Germany condemning the atrocious Israeli attacks
Berlin police announced their intention to strictly enforce restrictions
among protesters in solidarity with Palestinians, including forbidding
slogans that “incite violence” or the burning of flags or effigies.
Since the deadly Israeli war on Gaza started, the Israeli raids have
killed more than 800 Palestinians, most of which are women and
children, and injured more than 5,000 others so far.
The International Quds Day is held on the last Friday of the fasting
month, Ramadan, and was declared in 1979, by the late founder
of the Islamic Republic, Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
