Palestinians in the Gaza Strip marked the international Quds Day after the Friday prayers.

Carrying placards that denounce the occupation of Palestine demonstrators said they are ready to sacrifice their lives to end the Israeli occupation of Jerusalem al-Quds.
Palestinian factions also took part in this international event

Initiated by the late founder of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Rouhollah Khomeini, the International Quds Day marks the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims throughout the globe hold rallies in support of the Palestinian resistance against what the late Imam referred to as the illegitimate Israeli regime occupying Palestine.

An Iftar banquet in the honor of the International Quds Day was held under the auspices of the Resistance Committee For Palestine which is funded by Lebanese Resistance Leader Seyed Hassan Nasrallah.
The participants in the Iftar banquet also lauded Imam Khomeini and the people of the Islamic Republic of Iran for their support of the Palestinians.

Palestinians have repeatedly said that they consider East al-Quds, which Israel occupied in 1967 and annexed in 1981, as the capital of their future state.

The Al-Quds Day is an opportunity for people around the world to show their support for the Palestinians who have lived under occupation for generations and hope that by next year on this day they will have gained their freedom.
