While countrywide rallies marking the International Quds Day have been canceled in Iran due to the coronavirus outbreak, a series of special plans have been devised to mark the event, an official said.
Iran’s Islamic Propagation Coordination Council announced on Sunday that this year’s demonstrations marking the Quds Day will not be held because of health restrictions to contain the pandemic.  
However, a special event will be held in honor of Quds Day on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, the statement said, adding that Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei will address the nation on May 22, Tasnim News Agency reported.
The Leader’s speech will be aired live on local and international radio and television channels.
In order to make the most of Ayatollah Khamenei’s speech, no other event will be held in any part of the country in the name of Quds Day plans, according to the council.
International Quds Day is an annual event in which demonstrators express solidarity with the Palestinian people and condemn the occupation of Palestinian territories by the Israeli regime.
