Armed Forces call for high turnout in Int'l Qods Day rallies

Tehran, July 23, IRNA – Iran Armed Forces Headquarters in a statement on Wednesday described the International Qods Day an opportunity to once again display the unity and determining power of the Islamic Ummah aimed at changing the global power structure and geometry with focus on Islam and annihilation of the “cancerous tumor” of Israel.

The statement strongly condemned the fatal and biased silence of the so-called human rights advocates and inaction of some Arab-Islamic countries towards the Zionist regime's crimes in the occupied Palestine, Gaza in particular.

"Without doubt, the coincidence of the Zionists' atrocities in the occupied Palestine with the terrorist operations of Daesh Takfiri extremists in Iraq and Syria indicated that a huge evolution is taking place in the region," the statement added.

It also called for high turnout of the Iranian people from all walks of life in the International Qods Day rallies to be held on July 25.

The Father of the Islamic Revolution, the late Imam Khomeini, designated the last Friday of the holy fasting month of Ramdan as the day to support the rights of the Palestinians and liberation of the Holy Qods.
