Quds, the axis of Muslim unity is the theme of this international conference which has drawn political figures and activists from all over the world to Tehran to express their solidarity with the Palestinians in their struggle against the Israeli occupation.

Israeli forces have repeatedly attacked Palestinian worshipers at the al-Aqsa Mosque site since early April, with the start of the holy month of Ramadan which coincided with Passover.

Last week, more than 150 Palestinian worshipers were injured when Israeli forces stormed the compound in the occupied city of al-Quds.

The regime continued its violence at the powder keg site and cracked down on solidarity protests across the occupied West Bank.

This conference is held ahead of International Quds Day, a global pro-Palestinian gathering that takes place every year on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan.

Activists here see Quds Day as an opportunity to shed light on Israeli crimes in Palestine and hope it will spur the international community to act on behalf of the Palestinians.

Delegates here say that Palestine remains the top priority and the deepest problem in the Muslim world, calling on Muslims everywhere to participate en masse in the international day of Quds.

They say it’s the only way to shine a light on the Palestinian cause amid Tel Aviv’s attempts to sweep its crimes under the rug.
