Virtual Int’l Congress of Holy Quds kicks off in Iran

Virtual Int’l Congress of Holy Quds kicks off in Iran

The second International Congress of Holy Quds started virtually in the city of Qom, southern Tehran, on Tuesday with the participation of national and international figures on the occasion of the International Quds Day which will be marked on May 7.

The two-day online event is attended by 30 scientific and cultural figures from Iran, Palestine, Malaysia, India, Pakistan, France, Argentina, Iraq, Turkey, Chile, UAE, Lebanon, Syria, UK, Canada and Tunisia, IRNA reported.

Participants will discuss various topics including the issue of Palestine, human rights, Zionist regime tricks for occupying the Holy Quds, the United Nations resolutions on Quds, as well as Palestine and the Islamic Ummah (nations).

Speakers of the event will deliver their speeches in Persian, English and Arabic.

The International Quds Day is an annual event during which demonstrators express their solidarity with the Palestinian people and opposition to the occupation of the Palestinian territories by the Zionist regime of Israel.

The day is seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini, who officially declared the last Friday of the holy fasting month of Ramadan as the International Quds Day back in 1979, following the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

Since then, the world's freedom-seekers, especially in the Islamic countries, mark the occasion by staging massive rallies and organized special ceremonies. However, this year Iran has no plan to hold public demonstrations to mark the event, for the second consecutive year, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19.
