Iran holds Quds Day rallies amid tensions

Authorities in Tehran also displayed three surface-to-surface ballistic missiles, including the Zolfaghar missile that Iran said it used this week against Islamic State targets in Syria.

Senior Iranian government, legislative and military officials, including President Hassan Rouhani and the Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, participated in the rallies.

Protesters also burned the flag of militant group ISIS which claimed responsibility for attacks in Tehran this month.

The country's nuclear and ballistic missile programs have always been a point of contention between Tehran and Washington, and are behind American sanctions against Iran.

"The Iranian revolutionary nation, together with the Muslim Ummah all around the world, will massively take part in Quds International Day demonstrations to stress the need to fight until the annihilation of the Israeli regime and also the development of different aspects of confrontation with the global arrogance and hegemonies", the statement went on to say.
