At the border with occupied Palestine in southern Lebanon, preparations for the celebration organized by Hezbollah in Maroun al-Ras on the occasion of Jerusalem International Day were completed on Friday afternoon, during which Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah will deliver a speech.
The ceremony is set to start at 17:30 (Beirut Timing).
Each year, the International Quds Day is celebrated on the last Friday of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Millions of people across the world throng the streets to mark this day designated by the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini.
This year, Quds Day has become a larger rallying cry as it comes after months of mass protests in Gaza which were met with deadly force against unarmed protesters. More than 120 Palestinian protesters were martyred.
