Supreme Leader to address nation live on Intl. Quds Day

Tehran, May 5, IRNA - Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei is to address the Iranian nation in a live speech on International Quds Day on Friday.

Ayatollah Khamenei’s speech will be broadcast live on the occasion at 14:30 local time on Friday via various TV channels, on his official website (KHAMENEI.IR), and his official pages on social media networking.

In Ramadan of 1979, the late Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini designated the last Friday of the holy month as the Quds day to the world and said in a speech: "I call on all Muslims and Muslim governments to unite in order to get the hands of this occupier (Israel) and it supporters off Palestine and call on all Muslims around the world to name the last Friday of Ramadan month as the 'Quds Day' and declare the international solidarity of Muslims in supporting legal rights of (Palestinian) Muslims."

Since then, the world's freedom-seekers, especially in Islamic countries, have been staging massive rallies and organized special ceremonies to mark the occasion.
