Iran has been holding Al-Quds Day rallies since the country’s 1979 Islamic Revolution. Demonstrators at Friday’s rallies were seen on state TV chanting “Death to Israel, Death to America,” while carrying banners reading “Israel should be wiped off the map” and burning Israeli flags, Reuters reported.

“This year’s rally…shows people want our region to be cleaned up from terrorists, backed by the Zionist regime (Israel),” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told state TV.

Iran also showed off its ballistic missile arsenal, including the Zolfaghar missile, which Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps fired on Islamic State bases in eastern Syria last weekend.
