“Based on the first article of the plan, all Iranian bodies are required to use the country’s regional and international capacities to confront the Zionist regime’s measures, specially its warmongering and terrorist moves, siege (of Gaza), settlement construction, displacing the Palestinian people and occupation of countries’ lands, including Golan,” Rapporteur of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini told FNA on Saturday.
He added that the plan also underlines support for Quds city as the Palestinian capital and the Palestinian people.
Naqavi Hosseini said that based on the approval, any cooperation or spying for the Zionist regime is equal to enmity towards God and corruption on earth and activities of the Israeli software platforms in Iran and using its hardware and software products is forbidden.
He noted that another article of the plan requires the foreign ministry to pursue the referendum in the Palestinian territories which has been registered at the UN too.
The plan was approved on the eve of the International Quds Day on May 22.
The International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Israel's occupation of Beitul-Muqaddas. Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world, specially in Iran, as well as a large number of non-Muslim states.
The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.
In relevant remarks on Saturday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani underlined the importance of the International Quds Day, saying that people in several cities in Iran which face lower risks of coronavirus epidemic will come out to mark the day.
“Two decisions have been made for the Quds Day; first is that Quds Day will be held in 218 cities which are white cities (considering the low risk of coronavirus epidemic) not in the form of rallies but by presence in the Friday prayers (and of course) by respecting all hygiene protocols,” President Rouhani said, addressing a meeting of the National Coronavirus Campaign Headquarters.
He added that the International Quds Day rallies will be held in Tehran symbolically.
“It was decided that the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) be tasked with holding the rallies,” Rouhani said, explaining that the rallies in Tehran will come in the form of a car-driving rally in a symbolic move and without ordinary people’s presence.
Earlier this month, an official with the Coordination Council of Islamic Propagation Organization said Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei will deliver a speech on the occasion of the International Quds Day corresponding with May 22.
