Iran celebrates Quds Day with “millions” chanting “Death to Israel, death to America and UK!”

Iran was hosting anti-Israel rallies across the country, with demonstrators taking to the streets to shout slogans against the Jewish state and to condemn the “occupation” of Palestinian land. The protests were part of the annual Quds Day holiday.

Quds Day, also known as Al-Quds Day, as a historic Arabic name for Jerusalem, is aimed at protesting Israel.

State media reported that “millions” took to the streets in Tehran and other Iranian cities on Friday, shouting “Death to Israel.”

Demonstrators held banners with slogans including “Israel should be wiped off the map.” Some could be seen burning the Israeli flag, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Protestors also took aim at the US, UK, Saudi Arabia, and Islamic State.

“Death to the House of Saud and Daesh (IS),” the protesters chanted, along with “Death to America” and “Death to the UK.”

Many protesters on Friday carried photos of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who also founded Quds Day. Others were carrying photos of his successor, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani joined the march through Tehran.
