Quds Day rallies set off in Iran

Tehran, The rallies of Iranian people to mark the International Quds Day just began in Tehran and other parts of the country.

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, on August 7, 1979, designated the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as the Quds Day and the day of Islam's life.

More than 5,300 photographers and journalists, including 150 foreign journalists, are covering the events.

The rallies this year is being staged under the slogan 'victory of resistance front, defeat of US-Zionism sedition, Palestine determination for return'.

Some developments, such as moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Quds, escalation of the Zionist brutal raid on Palestinians, defeat of the terrorist groups supported by the US and the Zionist regime and the achievements of the resistance front in Golan heights, have added to the importance of the occasion this year.
