Journalists Across the World to Cover Intl. Quds Day

Thursday, June 7, 2018 - 12:00

Every year on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, millions of people across the world take to the streets to mark Quds Day, showing their solidarity with the Palestinians and condemning Israel’s decades-long occupation and atrocities.

According to an ISCA report, more than 150 journalists, photographers and cameramen from 20 different countries as well as 100 TV channels and news agencies will cover International Quds Day on June 8, 2018.

This year’s Quds Day comes weeks after the US officially opened its new embassy in occupied Jerusalem al-Quds amid a deadly Israeli crackdown on protests in the blockaded Gaza Strip.

The decision sparked outrage and deadly protests in Palestine and Muslim nations, which deem Jerusalem al-Quds as the future capital of a Palestinian state.

“We will pray in Quds” is the official motto chosen for International Quds Day 2018.
