Iran Backs All Groups That Are Ready to Fight Israel
Iranian officials threatened Israel on Friday, April 29, as thousands of Iranians marched in Tehran to mark "Al-Quds Day," The Associated Press reported.
Friday was the first time such marches were held since before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
Al-Quds Day was declared in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomeini, the leader of the Iranian Revolution. It is marked throughout the Middle East and in countries around the world, including the United States.
During Al-Quds Day, rallies are held around the world and are used to incite against Israelis and Jews.
Demonstrators chanted "Death to Israel" and "Death to America" and set fire to American, British, and Israeli flags during Friday’s rally, according to AP.
Iranian state TV later showed a variety of ballistic missiles on display at the rally, describing them as "Israel hitters."
The head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's expeditionary force, known as the Quds force, said that Iran backs all groups ready to fight Israel.
"We support any front that is formed against this criminal regime, and we will support any community that is ready to fight this criminal regime," Gen. Esmail Ghaani said at a speech in the northeastern city of Mashhad. (INN / VFI News)
