An Israeli flag is set to fire during the International Quds Day rallies in Malaysia, August 26, 2011.
Hundreds of people have held a rally marking the International Quds Day in the Russian capital, Moscow, to denounce Israel’s crimes against Palestinians and the West’s support for the regime.

Hundreds of Muslims from Russia, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Iran, Lebanon and Palestine held the anti-Israeli rally in Moscow on the last Friday of Ramadan, IRNA reported.

The ralliers carried Palestinian flags, pictures of al-Aqsa Mosque and placards in support of Palestinians.

They chanted slogans against the United States and Israel and called for an end to the Gaza siege.

At the end of the rally, a statement was issued urging the resolution of the Palestinian issue through holding a referendum with the participation of all displaced Palestinians.

The statement also referred to the wave of Islamic Awakening in Arab countries and demanded respect for legal rights of Muslims. It also condemned efforts by certain international powers to create a division among Muslims.

Muslims all across the world took part in the International Quds Day rallies on Friday to voice their support for Palestinians.

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic, designated the last Friday of Ramadan as the International Quds Day, during which Muslims across the world hold rallies to show their support for Palestinians.
