A group of Norwegian Muslims have rallied in Norway’s capital of Oslo on the occasion of Quds Day, calling for an end to Israel’s state terrorism.

The demonstrators gathered in front of Norway’s parliament building on Friday, carrying signs that demanded an end to Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories and its terrorist activities.

“Participating in this annual demonstration is incumbent upon all Muslims,” a Norwegian national attending the demonstration said.

Another Norwegian national said “we have come to answer Imam Khomeini’s Fatwa to keep Quds Day alive.”

Imam Khomeini, in August 1979 declared the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan as the International Quds Day, calling for international rallies in support of Palestinians and against Israel.
