In Pictures| Worldwide protests marking Quds Day

Worldwide (QNN)- Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in Iran, Pakistan, Iraq, India, Nigeria, Kenya, Malaysia, Germany, and South Africa marking on Saturday in a show of solidarity with Palestinians, as part of the worldwide Quds Day protests, also condemning a planned Middle East “peace plan” that US President Donald Trump has touted as the “deal of the century.”

Protesters burned effigies of Donald Trump and trampled Israeli flags.

The “deal”, which has yet to be unveiled by its architect, Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, has already been rejected by the Palestinians, who say Trump’s policies have shown him to be blatantly biased in favour of Israel.

Held each year on the last Friday of the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan, Al Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem, and the day is an occasion to express support for the Palestinians and opposing Zionism.
