Iraqis people marched in the capital, Baghdad, in commemoration of the Quds International Day, stressing their support for the Palestinian cause.
The participants raised the flags of Palestine and the resistance as well as pictures of the martyrs, General Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.
The participants stressed that Daesh and the Zionist terrorism are two sides of the one coin, adding “they are implementing the Western colonial project, in fragmenting the Islamic and Arab region, and causing strife”.
The International Quds Day is an annual event during which demonstrators express their solidarity with the Palestinian people and opposition to the occupation of the Palestinian territories by the Zionist regime of Israel.
The day is seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who officially declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as International Quds Day back in 1979. It falls on Friday, April 29, this year.
