Iranians, Palestinians Inseparable, Top Cleric Stresses

Speaking to reporters at the International Quds Day rallies in the central city of Qom on Friday morning, Ayatollah Jannati said Iranian and Palestinian people are inseparable brothers under the rules of Islam and humanity.

He underscored that the motto of ‘Death to the US and to Israel’ will remain in place as long as the Islamic Republic is existing.

The cleric also stressed keeping the path to freedom of Palestine until the decisive destruction of Israel, which he said will occur in the not too distant future.

Each year, the International Quds Day is held on the last Friday of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

The event’s raison d'être is renewing support for the Palestinians and fierce denunciation of Israel.

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.
