Protesters held massive rallies in cities across Iran on Friday, marking the annual Al-Quds Day, an anti-Zionist event which calls for the liberation of Palestine.

Demonstrators waved Palestinian flags and held signs bearing slogans such as "Death to Israel" at Friday's rallies, according to AFP.

Iran's Fars News Agency reported that millions of people were expected to take part in the events. Al-Quds Day rallies were also scheduled to take place in other countries throughout the Muslim world on Friday.
