This year’s marches began at 10:00 local time, after a two-year pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and unfolded along several avenues of the Iranian capital until converging at Tehran University.
The World Al-Quds Day events are also being held in more than 90 countries, the head of the Islamic Development Coordination Council, Mohamad-Hosein Musapur, confirmed.
These activities are held in the presence of Muslims, freedom-loving people and other divine religions in solidarity with the holy city of Al-Quds and Palestine and to repudiate the crimes of the Zionist regime, Musapur remarked.
Iran’s government vowed to show massive support for the Palestinian people in the World Al-Quds Day march to condemn “Israel’s outrageous aggressions.”
Iranian President Seyed Ebrahim Raisi assured that unity and solidarity among Muslim peoples would lead to the complete liberation of Al-Quds and restoration of the rights of the oppressed Palestinians.
