TEHRAN, May 23 (NNN-IRNA) – Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, on Friday, called for “resistance” against Israeli pressures on occupied Palestinian territories, according to the leader’s official website.
“My main advice is to continue this struggle” against occupation, and to better organise the resistant groups inside Palestinian territories, Khamenei said, on the occasion of the International Quds (Jerusalem) Day.
He added, Iran will not hesitate in its duty to assist the Palestinians.
Quds Day rallies were held in the capital Tehran on Friday, in a symbolic way, with motorists driving in convoy, to avoid COVID-19 risks.
The day is an annual event observed on the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in Iran and several Muslim countries, to support the Palestinian cause.– NNN-IRNA
