People in Iran and many other countries are set to hold rallies to mark International Quds Day, which falls on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.
The occasion is annually marked in solidarity with the Palestinian nation. The event is an opportunity to highlight Israel’s decades-long occupation of Palestinian land and its atrocities against them. Iran had canceled Quds Day marches due to COVID in the past two years. But this year, the rallies will be held in some 900 cities. The day is marked in over 90 countries. In some countries, the occasion is observed on the last Sunday of the holy month. This year’s Quds Day comes amid tensions in the occupied West Bank and al-Quds where Israeli forces and settlers have been raiding towns and the al-Aqsa Mosque compound. Hundreds of Palestinians have been injured in the attacks.
