(Persia Digest) – Quds day has been celebrated by Iranian officials and people.
Quds day this year was special for two reasons – the US withdrawal from the JCPOA on the one hand and moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on the other – made this day the focus of attention more than any other year.
Effigies of US and Israeli leaders were paraded on the streets of Tehran and the Trump effigy wearing a US-Israeli flag was symbolically hung from a crane.
The march ended with slogans against Israel and the US President. Demonstrators declared their opposition to the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem and emphasized on the freedom of Palestinians from the oppressors and occupiers.
Persia Digest reports that Quds day was established by the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Khomeini. On this day, which is the last Friday of Ramadan, Muslims around the world take to the streets in support of the Palestinian people and voice their opposition to the crimes committed by the Zionist regime, and declare their unity with the Palestinians.
