Palestine Inseparable Part of Islamic Lands: Iran's Army

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran's Army in a statement ahead of the International Quds Day described Palestine as an inseparable part of the Islamic lands that belongs to the Muslim world forever.

In the statement, released on Tuesday, the Iranian Army hailed the International Quds Day as an occasion to reaffirm solidarity with the oppressed people of Palestine and express disgust at the Zionist regime of Israel as the "common enemy of the Islamic society."

The Quds Day also marks "unity and convergence" in the Islamic community in the fight against attempts made by the world arrogance and Israel to create "evil coalitions" for creating rifts among the Islamic denominations, the statement added.

Millions of people in Iran as well as other countries in the world are expected to hold massive rallies on coming Friday to show their solidarity with the Palestinian people and the cause of Palestine.

The event's overarching theme is the support for the Palestinians and fierce denunciation of Israel.

It is seen as an opportunity for freedom-seeking people across the world, regardless of faith, to voice their support for the cause of Palestine and vent their anger against the Apartheid regime of Israel, which has occupied Palestinian territories since 1967.

The day is also seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who officially declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as International Quds Day back in 1979.
