"International Quds Day is an enduring reminder of the Islamic Revolution's legitimacy of the foundations of this great movement of the yoke of the tyrants of the time," Rahmani Fazli said in a statement on Friday.
He noted that the "cruel Zionist regime was formed with the support of the devilish regime of domination the US, and with the support of this tyrannical regime, the Zionist regime continues to live in humiliation and fear, but the Islamic Revolution goes beyond the infamous treaties of some countries and reactionary rulers and will breathe new life into the historical and eternal truth of Palestine".
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.
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus in Iran, the International Quds Day will be commemorated differently without holding gatherings and rallies.
