Tehran, July 29, IRNA – Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Tuesday thanked Iranian people for their massive turn out in the International Quds Day rallies last Friday.

"Fairly speaking, the Quds Day was indeed a great day. In the hot weather, our fasting people – men, women, especially the women observing Islamic Dress Code, let's say Chador, while embracing their baby, had taken part in the rallies. A nation shows up in such places when wants to display its livelihood, and when wants to put on display its general endeavor, which is not exclusive to a special group or people but to the nation at large . Thanks God, our dear nation did so," said the Supreme Leader in his Eid-ul-Fitr (Fast breaking feast) congregational prayers sermon in Tehran's Mosalla prayers ground on Tuesday.

The Paramount Leader said Gaza is the prime issue of the world of Islam and humanity should react to the case.

"Today, top issue of the world of Islam and perhaps that of humanity is Gaza; canine rabies and wolf predator have attacked innocent human beings; mankind should show due reaction to it," said the Supreme Leader.
