Hundreds of Al Quds protesters marched through the streets of the Canadian city of Toronto to condemn the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories. The event was met by angry resistance from members and supporters of the Jewish Defense League (JDL), but Toronto Police officers managed to keep the two sides at a distance.

Al-Quds day was introduced in 1979 by late Iranian leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini as a day of protest against Zionism and Israel’s control of Jerusalem.
