Iranians join rallies to mark Quds Day

STORY: Protesters set fire to the Israeli flag, stamped on it and threw darts at it to show solidarity with the Palestinians.

The country’s new domestically-made Kheibar Buster missile was displayed at the event.

Iran's Jerusalem Day rallies are held annually in support of Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state in territories captured by Israel in a 1967 war, on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

It was the first time people were allowed to march through the streets since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic two years ago.
