Switzerland | Human Rights Organizations Observe Al-Quds International Front of UN Headquarters

Arab and Islamic human rights organizations set up photography exhibit in Geneva, Switzerland, marking Al-Quds International Day, showing Israeli crimes in Palestine.

The photographs, displayed at the Broken Chair opposite the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, carried the Palestinian flag and Al-Aqsa Mosque.

In the exhibition were also banners stressing solidarity with the Palestinian people in Al-Aqsa squares facing the attacks of the Israeli occupation police.

A protest stand was also held in the event during which messages of solidarity with the Palestinian people were delivered and a presentation of Israeli attacks, displacement of Palestinians, and the Judaization of Jerusalem were displayed.

Al-Quds International Day is an annual event opposing Israel's occupation of Beitul-Muqaddas. Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world and in a number of non-Muslim states.

The occassion was marked by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring the importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.
