Iran's actions don't show the same solidarity that Quds Day signifies.
"We will support and assist any nation or any group anywhere who opposes and fights the Zionist regime," Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says ahead of Quds (Jerusalem) Day.
Protest marches in Iran, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, India, occupied West Bank, disputed Kashmir, and several other places show solidarity for Palestinians.
Quds Day was launched by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran's 1979 revolution, and is held on the last Friday of the Muslim month of fasting Ramadan.
Protests were held in different parts of the Muslim world to mark Al Quds Day, which is held on the last Friday of Ramadan in support of Palestinians and Muslim rights in Jerusalem.
Israeli forces have killed at least 120 Palestinians in Gaza since protests began on March 30. Thousands more have been injured in demonstrations against the loss of Palestinian lands, Israel's blockade of Gaza, and the US embassy move to Jerusalem.
