People across the globe have taken to the streets on the last Friday in the holy month of Ramadan recognized as the International Quds Day to voice solidarity with the Palestinian people amid the 2020 struggle with the new coronavirus pandemic which has imposed restrictions on public gatherings across the globe.

The last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, as it has been a tradition since a historical decree by the founder of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979, saw activists express their solidarity with the people of Palestine in unique ways after annual demonstrations were called off due to COVID-19 fears.

This year’s Quds Day coincides with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s push to annex Palestinian lands in the occupied West Bank.

The new land grab project is a by-product of US President Donald Trump’s so-called deal of the century peace initiative, which blatantly undermines Palestine’s right to statehood in exchange for vague promises of basic economic opportunities.
