World A- A A+

On Quds Day, observed annually on the last Friday of Ramadan, Muslims around the world traditionally gather for pro-Palestinian marches, Sputnik reports. 

Thousands of Yemenis are marching in the capital city of Sanaa to mark International Quds Day this Friday.

The annual Quds Day celebration was launched by Iran in 1979 to show solidarity with Palestinians and to counter what Tehran sees as Israeli aggression. Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem, which lies at the centre of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
