Iranian President-Elect Hassan Rouhani on Friday refered to Israel as a "wound" that has afflicted the Muslim world for years and must be removed, Iran's Mehr News Agency reported.

Rouhani made the comments at a demonstration in Tehran marking Al-Quds (Jerusalem) day, an annual show of support for the Palestinian cause. The speech also came just one day before Rouhani, described by pundits as a "moderate," was set to be sworn in, replacing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as Iranian president.
