People have taken to the streets across on the International Quds Day to voice support for the Palestinian cause.
demonstrators marched in various neighborhoods of the capital, Manama,
on Friday, under the motto of “Revolutionaries’ Objective,” waving
Palestinian flags and shouting anti-Israeli slogans.
They also
chanted slogans in condemnation of the ruling Al Khalifah regime and its
staunch regional supporter, the Al Saud dynasty of Saudi Arabia.
rallies were also staged in the Wadyan Village of the island of Sitra,
Nuwaidrat Village close to Sitra, the northern village of Abu Saiba
located west of Manama as well as al-Musalla Village on the western
outskirts of the capital.
The International Quds Day is marked
annually on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan as
designated by the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini.

comes as the occupied Palestinian territories have been the scene of
heightened tensions since August 2015, when Israel imposed restrictions
on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound
in East al-Quds.
More than 220 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of Israeli forces since the beginning of last October.
