Iranian students protest UK anti-Palestine policies

Scores of Iranian university students held a rally on Friday before the British Embassy in Tehran protesting anniversary of the 1917 Balfour Declaration by the British government which led to the establishment of Israel in Palestinian lands.

Iran Press/Middle East: The protesters hoisted Palestinian flag and chanted slogans condemning the UK's support of atrocities committed by the Zionist regime of Israel against Palestinians.

Issued by Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour during the First World War, the declaration disregarded the legitimate right of Palestinians over their motherland which was then a region under Ottoman Empire rule with a small minority of Jewish population.
