Turkey commemorates International Quds Day

The participants at the rallies denounced the Israeli occupation

People in Turkey have marked International Quds Day by holding rallies after Friday prayers.

The demonstrators denounced the Israeli occupation of Palestine and called on the Turkish government to cut ties with Israel.

Turkey has hosted Quds Day marches for many years, including this year on Friday.

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.
