Iranians have taken to the streets to mark the International Qud Day after Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei called this year's rallies more important than ever.
As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) People in Tehran and other cities are flocking to main streets to support Palestinians who are facing the dangerous prospect of a sellout of their rights through a US plan called the "deal of the century".
Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar on Thursday sent a grave warning to Israel ahead of Quds Day and used the opportunity to
reject US President Donald Trump’s plan and a summit in Bahrain next month to promote it.
“Trump wants to sell al-Quds to the Zionists without paying a price,” Sinwar said. “I call him from here and say that I and the Palestinian people will be demonstrating along the [Gaza] fence in light of Quds Day in numbers that have not been seen before.”
Sinwar also warned to attack Tel Aviv and other cities with double the force if “the enemy dares to attack once again.”
“We will not sell al-Quds …We believe liberation of al-Quds will come soon,” he added.
The International Quds Day is a legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who designated
the day in solidarity with the Palestinians.
Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, the International Quds Day has been held worldwide on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner on Thursday met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem al-Quds to drum up support for the conference in Bahrain.
The Trump administration seeks to use the Bahrain meeting to bring Arab states traditionally opposed to the Israeli occupation of Palestinians lands into line.
Sinwar warned, “Anyone who deals with the issue of al-Quds is an enemy to us, and we have no dialogue with him."
"I call upon the leaders of the Arab countries – if you want to keep your seats, you have no choice but to choose our option, the option of liberating Palestine,” he added.
