Iranian officials attend Quds Day rallies in Tehran

Senior Iranian officials have participated in marches in the Iranian capital to mark the World Quds Day.

Quds Day rallies began all across Iran earlier today to show support for the oppressed Palestinian people in the face of the Zionist occupation and brutalities.

President Ebrahim Raisi, Vice President Mohammad Mokhber, Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf, Judiciary chief Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ejei, and IRGC Quds Force Commander Brigadier General Esmaeil Ghaani were among senior officials to attend the marches in Tehran.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the rallies, President Raisi said that this feeling arising from the hearts and these cries will definitely lead to the annihilation of the Zionist regime and the elevation of the dignity of the Palestinian people and the Muslims of the world.

Also, Ejei told reporters that that the Zionist crimes are being perpetrated out of desperation, adding that this regime is spending its last days.

Noting that the Zionist crimes have been committed in the light of support from the United States, he said that the US officials have to be held responsible before the Zionist regime.

In addition to Iranian officials, some well-known foreign figures are also present in rallies in Tehran, including Bahrain’s top Shia cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim, Ziyad al-Nakhalah, the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Abu Fadak Al-Mohammedawi, the chief of staff of Iraq's Hashd al-Shaabi.

The Quds Day rallies are of key significance this year as the Zionist regime is carrying out a major invasion of the besieged Gaza Strip which has left around 33,000 civilian people killed since it began about six months ago.

Concurrent with the rallies in the Iranian capital, the funeral procession of the martyrs of an April 1 Zionist regime's attack on Iran’s consulate in Damascus was also held in downtown Tehran.
