Lebanese newspaper al-Akhbar which is closely affiliated with Hezbollah , reported also that the militant group is planning to hold a ceremony marking the Al-Quds Day in the hill where the banner was hoisted.
Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah will be appearing on TV on Friday to deliver a speech that will be marking Al-Quds Day according to the daily.
Al -Quds Day, officially known in Iran as International Quds Day , is an annual event that was conceived originally in 1979 by the leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. It is held on the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan to express solidarity with the Palestinian people and opposing Zionism as well as Israel’s control of Jerusalem; Al-Quds is that city’s Arabic name.
Quds Day is also commemorated in several countries in the Arab and Muslim world with protests against the Israeli occupation of Jerusalem.
