Rallies in Support of Palestinians

Iranians in large numbers held rallies across the country on Friday to mark the annual day of solidarity with the Palestinians.  
Chanting "Death to Israel" and burning the Israeli flag, people from different walks of life condemned the occupation of Palestinian territories. 
Demonstrators chanted anti-American slogans to protest the US decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Beit-ul-Moqaddas (Jerusalem), which last year was officially recognized by Washington as Israel's capital.
International Quds Day—which is marked on the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan—was initiated by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. 
Similar rallies were held by pro-Palestine demonstrators in other countries.
