International Quds Day march held in Germany

International Quds Day march held in Germany

The Friday march drew some 600 pro-Palestinian activists, who were heeding a call by the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, to march for Palestine on the last Friday of every Ramadan.

The demonstrators in the Berlin rally held up banners bearing the slogans, “Free Palestine, Boycott Israel,” and “Resistance against Zionism.”

They also carried pictures of Imam Khomeini, and those of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, as well as Secretary General of the Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, whose group has fought off two Israeli wars on Lebanon.

The German capital has hosted Quds Day marches for many years, including this year on Friday.

Israel has reacted with fury to a rally by hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators in the German capital of Berlin on the occasion of the International Quds Day. The Israeli embassy in Berlin had called on the city’s Mayor Michael Müller to prevent the march. Müller ignored the call, and the Israeli embassy issued threatening remarks about him afterwards.

The occasion was honored by millions of pro-Palestinian and Muslim activists worldwide. 

Back in 1979, Imam Khomeini declared the last Friday of the holy fasting month of Ramadan as the International Quds Day, demanding Muslims worldwide to demonstrate on the occasion to remind the world of the plight of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation and aggression.
