Addressing a meeting of Judiciary officials in Tehran on Monday, Hojat-ol-Islam Raeisi referred to the upcoming International Quds Day and said it is a priority for the Muslims Ummah (community) to liberate Quds.
He also highlighted the Zionist regime’s crimes against the people of Palestine, Lebanon and other regional countries and said the regime is now seeking to implement the scandalous “deal of the century” plan.
The US and the Zionist regime will never succeed in carrying out this plot, the senior cleric added.
The International Quds Day is a legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, who designated the day in solidarity with Palestinians.
Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, the International Quds Day has been held worldwide on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
This year, the International Quds Day falls on Friday, May 22.
