Hundreds of thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets to protest the perpetual atrocities committed by the Zionist regime in Gaza.

In an effort to convey their message to world politicians, demonstrators rallied in Tehran after the Friday prayers chanting slogans and condemning the siege on the Gaza Strip.

They denounced the silence of international bodies and all those who claim to be defending human rights, urging the international community to take action.

“There should be demonstrations like this all over the world,” a protester told Press TV correspondent Gisoo Misha Ahmadi. “What is the UN doing? Why isn’t anyone doing anything about the dire situation in Gaza?”

The rally follows a demonstration which was held in front of the United Nations building in Tehran on Thursday.

The Zionist regime has toughened embargoes on the Gaza Strip since the takeover of the coastal region by Hamas in June.

Gaza has been sealed by Israel for a week and according to reports US pressure has caused Egypt to block its breached border with Gaza as of 1300 GMT on Friday.
