Rouhani who joined International Quds Day rallies in the Iranian capital Tehran on Friday condemned Israel’s war on Gaza as “inhumane and genocidal” and said all Muslims should show their rage and resentment, unity and resistance against Israel.
The Iranian president said that Israel must realize that it cannot continue with its occupation by using weapons and that it needs to heed international demands.
The international community calls for the lifting of the Gaza blockade, release of prisoners, opening of Rafah border crossing and an end to bloodshed and war, Rouhani said.
He said that all Muslims should rise up against Israel, saying there is no way to confront Israel except through unity and resistance.
Iranians in millions took to the streets on Friday to hold rallies to mark International Quds Day and show support for the Palestinian nation in the face of Israeli occupation and atrocities.
The ralliers carrying placards and chanting anti-Israel slogans denounced the Zionist regime’s fresh bloody offensive against the besieged Gaza Strip.
