International Quds Day in Africa

People across Africa marked International Quds Day with massive rallies to demonstrate solidarity with the oppressed people of Palestine while condemning the Israeli apartheid regime over its atrocities and occupation of Palestine.

Record numbers turned out at this year's rallies because the world has been awoken by the horrific genocidal crimes being perpetrated against Palestinians by the Israeli apartheid regime in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

The large turnout at this year's Quds Day rallies across Africa once again reaffirmed the continent's historical support for the liberation of Palestine.
