World Quds Day march in capital

Quds Day (Jerusalem Day; Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem), officially called International Quds Day , is an annual event held on the last Friday of Ramadan that was initiated by the Islamic Republic of homeland in 1979 to express support for the Palestinians and oppose Zionism and Israel.
