Int’l Quds Day symbolizes all-out support for Palestinian cause

Quds Day symbolizes the global fight against the Zionist regime and shows an all-out support for the Palestinian cause.

The pro-Palestinian event is held every year on the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan.

This year’s Quds Day rallies will be held worldwide on Friday, April 5, 2024.

The Israeli regime continues the war, despite the UN Security Council passing a resolution, calling for an immediate cease-fire during Ramadan and Tel Aviv appearing before the International Court of Justice for the first time on charges of “genocide” against the Palestinians.

The death toll from Israel’s war on Gaza has risen to 32,705, the Health Ministry said in a statement, adding that 75,190 people have been injured since October 7, 2023.

The attacks target civilian areas and vital infrastructure while blocking humanitarian aid, leading to widespread hunger and medical shortages.

Hospitals have been operating far beyond capacity due to rising numbers of patients and displaced civilians seeking shelter.

The provision of essential health services – from maternal and newborn care to treatment for chronic conditions – has been severely compromised.

The UN has warned of a deteriorating humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, amid Israel’s tightened siege and an increasing death toll from its military attacks.

International Quds Day is considered the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who is revered as a spiritual leader by Muslims worldwide.

In 1979, shortly after leading an Islamic revolution that toppled the US-backed Shah of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini named the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan Quds Day.
