Thousands of Shiite Muslims marched throughout the region Friday to mark "Al-Quds Day," or Jerusalem Day, in an annual protest against Israeli rule over the holy city and show of support for the Palestinians.Some burned Israeli flags and effigies of U.S. President Donald Trump on a day instituted by Iran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.Iran was also determined to show defiance at a time of mounting pressure from the United States and its regional allies with thousands joining the march chanting "Death to Israel" and burning a Trump effigy.Thousands took to the streets in the capital and other cities, held every year since the early days of Iran's Islamic Revolution to show support for the Palestinians.Many were adamant that Iran is merely supporting the Palestinian people and is not planning a military attack as Israel fears.Israel captured East Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast War and annexed it to its capital, a move not recognized by most of the international community.
